Do I Really Need This?
Estate planning includes making decisions while you are competent and have legal capacity as to who will have the power to make decisions about your person and health when you are incompetent and/or lack legal capacity to make these decisions. A Health Care Directive and Living Will will make known, should you become incapacitated, who will have authority to make decisions about your person and health. This part of estate planning really is about your future as well as the “what-ifs” that can pop-up in life. Planning now for these decisions and life situations in the event you may be temporarily or long-term incapacitated is a gift to your family members or loved ones and will facilitate with ease when urgent or unexpected decisions about your health must be made.
