Lifetime Financial And Health Care Directives
Along with a thoughtfully prepared will and/or trust to provide for the disposition of your property at death, you should consider creating written directives concerning the management of your property and financial affairs during your lifetime and authorizing a person, or persons, of your choice to make health care and treatment decisions if you are either temporarily or permanently unable to handle your financial affairs or health care decisions yourself. The primary instruments for accomplishing those important objectives during your lifetime are a durable power of attorney, an appointment of health care representative, and a living will. The limited investment of time and the very modest cost of creating those lifetime directives and authorizations is well worth the peace of mind and protection they afford to you and your loved ones, and the reduction or elimination of the expense and effort that can result from the failure to create a valid durable power of attorney, appointment of health care representative, and a living will.
