A health care proxy (often referred to as a “living will” or a “health care directive”) is a legal agreement that grants one individual the responsibility of making health care decisions on behalf of another who is unable to do so independently.

The health care proxy documents the wishes of an individual to be carried out if one day he or she becomes unable to do so. That individual maintains control over his or her own health care matters up until he or she is determined to be incompetent. To establish a health care proxy, please contact us today.
