Q: What is a Living Will and Health Care Power of Attorney? Texas Power Of Attorney Form

A: A Health Care Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows an individual to designate another person to make medical decisions for him or her when he or she cannot make decisions for himself or herself. In other words it names someone who stands in your shoes and tells the doctors what to do or what not do for you.

A Living Will is a document that allows a person to explain in writing which medical treatment he or she does or does not want during a terminal illness. A terminal illness is a fatal illness that leads ultimately to death. A Living Will takes effect only when the patient is incapacitated and can no longer express his or her wishes. The will states which medical treatments may be used and which may not be used to die naturally and without the patient?s life being artificially prolonged by various medical procedures. Although the term Living Will may indicate that it is a Will, in reality, it is more similar to a Power of Attorney than a Will.

Tips for Preparing Texas Power of Attorney Forms

Letting somebody else make choices on your behalf is a huge decision and very nerve-racking. However, choosing the right person for this mission is essential.

  1. Think about your loved ones. Getting a POA drafted is a great way to begin, and normally, your dearest relatives understand your goals and desires better than anyone else. But keep in mind, if you elect your husband or wife to be your attorney-in-fact, in the event of breakup your arrangement can be terminated according to some state laws.
  2. Be aware of your possible agent’s health and location of residence. While preparing Texas Power of Attorney Forms, keep in mind that your fiduciary will take action and solve problems when you can't. As an example, they’ll probably need to go to a bank or medical center (if you submit a medical power of attorney form) to sign paperwork. So make certain they are qualified to handle this duty smoothly and quickly.
  3. Make sure you trust your possible fiduciary. Your agent should stick to your wishes. Preferably, both you and your fiduciary have a common attitude to life. Thus, they won't decline to satisfy your will, even though it means to set aside their beliefs or views. Go over this before planning power of attorney documents.

Be aware that planning Texas Power of Attorney Forms is voluntary for both parties, so give your agent a chance to think about if they are ready to take on the duty. Be patient and don't pressure anyone.
