What Is an Advance Directive?

What is an advance directive?

 

Much of estate planning includes planning for incapacity and death. It means having the proper framework in place to handle your affairs. Some of those affairs relate to your financial and ownership interests and may be governed by a power of attorney. Other interests relate to your health,which are governed by a health care surrogate or proxy. In either case, these documents appoint someone to make decisions on your behalf when you are unable to so yourself. You should appoint someone you trust and can rely on. The last document is a living will, which sets forth your desires in the event that you are in a vegetative state. In this regard, think Terri Schiavo. She didn’t have a living will.
