Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care

Typically when you are sick, you can go to the doctor and ask the questions that you need to in order to best care for your health. 

What if you get really sick before you can ask questions—so sick you don’t know what’s going on? Or what if you get hurt in an accident? Who will ask questions for you? Who will make decisions for you?

You can decide who will do these things for you BEFORE they happen. This person is called a patient advocate and these type of decisions, when put in writing, are called advance directives.
