The Healthcare Proxy is a document that allows you to appoint someone you trust to make healthcare choices on your behalf in the event you become incapacitated. If you do not have a healthcare proxy prior to becoming incapacitated, the state could be forced to make medical decisions on your behalf.
While it isn’t something that most of us enjoy thinking about, the possibility that an unexpected medical emergency could leave us unable to make treatment decisions for ourselves is something anyone could face at any time, especially as we get older.
Should such a medical emergency befall you or a loved one, we at Kostas & Melcher Law, LLC understand that you would want the person responsible for making treatment decisions to be someone you can trust to make the right ones according to your individual wishes.
Designating a legal Health Care Proxy can offer peace of mind by ensuring that there is no doubt as to who will be making such decisions should an unfortunate health crisis befall you or your loved one.
