Power of Attorney for Heathcare

A power of attorney for healthcare, or a healthcare proxy, empowers someone you trust (your agent) to ensure that your health care wishes are fulfilled. This person should have, or be aware of the location of, your health care directive and the wishes you have stated within that document. Additionally, should a situation arise that is not covered within your health care directive, your agent will be able to communicate your wishes rather than the decision being left to the doctors or your entire family.
