A Health Care Proxy designates a trusted individual that can step in and make healthcare decisions if you can not. Your health care proxy should know your wishes and desires to honor them. Your health care proxy will stay up-to-date on your medical treatments to make decisions as needed.

Your Long Island advance directives attorney can provide important guidance to prepare for unforeseen circumstances. Your attorney might recommend choosing an alternate agent who can step in if your first choice isn’t available. Your attorney can also help update your health care proxy if needed.


Your Long Island advance directives attorney can help ensure your end-of-life wishes are honored by drafting a living will. Your wishes can include preferences about end-of-life care and life sustaining treatments. A Living Will can address treatment for mechanical respiration, blood transfusions, artificial nutrition, and more.

Your Living Will goes into effect if you are unable to make healthcare decisions for yourself. Your health care provider will use it as a guide for medical treatment. Without such a document, your loved ones might have to make decisions on your behalf without knowing what you want. This is stressful and can lead to guilt and self-doubt. If you want to avoid putting stress on your family, reach out to a Long Island advance directives attorney.



Your advance directive lawyer can also help you safeguard your finances and property if you become incapacitated through a durable power of attorney. You will use this document to appoint someone to handle your financial matters if you cannot do so. If you become incapacitated, the appointee can take care of finacial matters including paying hospital bills, mortgages and taxes.  As with most elements of an estate plan, your attorney can map out the details of your durable power of attorney.


A Living Will enhances a Health Care Proxy to specifically address end of life care. A thoughtful health care proxy appoints a designated caretaker to adhere to your medical documents removing the opportunity for interpretation. Your Long Island advance directives attorney can create both documents to help you ensure that your wishes are met, and your family does not have to make stressful decisions for you.
