Get the Most from your Health Care Power of Attorney
A health care power of attorney authorizes the person of your choice to help you with your medical care. You can also make sure that person can help you with your mental health care. If you are older, you might be concerned with temporary dementia or capacity issues. No matter your age, your health care power of attorney needs to cover having the right people help you with brain injury, brain illness, depression or other mental health care needs WITHOUT COURT INVOLVEMENT.
