…and Legal Matters
It is critical and urgent that elders should arrange for their Powers of Attorney for both their Health and Finances/Property as soon as possible, to ensure legal protection before it is too late.
Powers of Attorney (POA): Financial and Health
There are two Powers of Attorney documents, one for your Finance and Property and the other for your Health (also sometimes known as “Living Will”).
These documents give legal authority to your trusted attorney(s) (spouse, family, relatives, friends etc) to act on your behalf in all circumstances and for your convenience, preventing a lot of confusion and possible conflict.
Your attorney(s) should be chosen with great care for making decisions such as:
- how your money will be spent, and/or invested
- where you will live
- the potential sale of your property
- the medical treatment you will or will not receive, i.e. do or do not resuscitate (DNR)
The above are some of the many significant legal powers you will be giving to your POAs.
