Helping You Plan For The Possibility Of Incapacity
Everyone hopes to have full mental capacity until the very end of life. While this is our hope, many of us will be incapacitated in some way in our final days. This can create extreme difficulties for family and loved ones, as they may have differences of opinion about your medical treatment. Through careful planning, you can minimize the likelihood of these events occurring. Documents such as a living will and a durable power of attorney for health care can give your loved ones the guidance they need. A lawyer will be essential in creating strategies that are customized to your needs. At the Law Office of Cliff Collins, we provide comprehensive estate planning services to people throughout Lonoke County and beyond.
Creating End-Of-Life Documents That Reflect Your Wishes
Depending on your situation, there are two types of documents that can assist you and your loved ones in the event you are incapacitated.
- A living will: This document will clarify your intentions about your medical care if you are unable to express them due to incapacity.
- A durable power of attorney for health care: This document will name someone who is authorized to make decisions about your medical care if you are unable to make them.
These decisions are very personal. We understand this, and will take the time to discuss your needs in detail. When you have made your decisions, we will create documents that fully reflect your wishes, while complying with the applicable laws. We have the experience and skill you need to make sure these documents will work as you intend.
