What is a Living Will | Scottsdale Estate Planning
Living Wills in Scottsdale, Arizona
I want to speak to you today regarding what a living will is in the state of Arizona. A living will is a written statement containing a person’s directives as to the medical care they authorize, as well as the medical care they may refuse in the event they are ever incapacitated and unable to express their desires regarding that medical care.
Health Care Power of Attorney
People usually also create a health care power of attorney, designating a person authorized to make medical decisions for that person if he or she is incapacitated. It’s a good idea to execute a health care power of attorney in the event you’re living will fails to include an unexpected health care situation that simply was not covered in your living will. Please feel free to contact the attorneys at Hildebrand Law if you have any other questions regarding living wills in Arizona.
