Everyone has personal feelings about which medical treatments they want to receive, or not to receive, at the end of their life. Even though it is an issue that many would rather not contemplate, it is advisable to make these choices as a part of a thorough estate plan and honor them in an official record before you suffer severe illness or personal injury and are unable to make your requirements known.

Advance health care directives, health care proxies or living wills, often go together with a durable power of attorney, make sure that your individual wishes relating to your health care are recognized and taken into account should you become incapacitated.

We are able to:

  • Assign a health care representative who is able to legally make decisions relating to your health on your behalf
  • Honor your health care plans, which have to be followed by your health care representative

These documents are simple and inexpensive and offer great security, enabling you to be assured that the choices you make relating to your health care shall be honored when you cannot speak for yourself.

Contact Richard Cary Spivack to schedule a consultation in which to discuss your options for an advance health care directive or living will.
