Mobile Notary Public – Health Care Directives – Plano TX
As a mobile notary public in Plano, TX., having your health care directives in place and notarized in the event of your incapacitation is an important step in avoiding confusion about your health care wishes. Health care by proxy documents designate a person with the right to make medical decisions on your behalf.
Many people never like thinking about being incapacitated and needing the help of another person which tends to lead a lack of planning. Putting your wishes in writing will avoid having someone else make a decision on your behalf.
The first step in documenting your health care wishes is a document often referred to as a living will. The purpose of the living will is executed solely to ensure your health care wishes are carried out.
You will decide what is included or excluded from your living will. It is very important to talk about these options with an estate planning attorney.
The second option is to implement a health care power of attorney. This document allows you to appoint another individual to make medical decisions on your behalf. Choosing a person you can trust is vitally important as they will be making decisions about your health and treatment.
Often, these two documents will operate in tandum when a decision about your health has been made. This will occur when a doctor determines that you are unfit to make proper decisions regarding your treatment.
After the documents go into effect, you can dispute any decisions that will work against your expressed desires.
