Designating a Health Care Proxy
An additional assurance you can give yourself with our services involves designating a specific person to make medical decisions for you when you are incapacitated and when you are not able to make your own medical decisions. Referred to as a proxy, this person should be intelligent, compassionate, capable of talking with and understanding physician's recommendations about medical care, and someone you trust to make the best decision based on your known wishes and intentions.
If you name your husband or wife to serve as the person to make medical decisions for you when or if you are unable to do so, it is advisable to name an alternate person in the event that both you and your spouse become incapable of making medical decisions at the same time. This can happen, for example, if both of you are involved in a common accident. Regardless of who you choose, we can ensure that your designation is legally sound.
