The Importance of Establishing Your Health Care Proxy , Manhattan, New York

No one knows what will happen in the future. Illness and injury can strike at any moment and there is little to be done to prevent them. As frightening of a concept as this may be, it’s important to face these facts of life head on and prepare for the future, so that you can enjoy life with minimal worries.

Establishing a Health Care Proxy will ensure that the person that you trust most, such as a family member or close friend, can make health care decisions on your behalf if you become unable to make a decision yourself. Generally, this is done through having an attorney or a legal document preparation service, such as We The People, document your desires.

A Health Care Proxy form designates health care agent and you may provide information on various guidelines, such as instruction regarding organ donation, special instructions on treatments such as dialysis and blood transfusion, and other wishes.

This is important if you become incapacitated due to an accident and major decisions must be made for your wellbeing. The importance of having a trusted health care agent was seen during the recent case of Terry Schiavo, a woman left in a persistent vegetative state, whose family fought over the right to make medical decisions on her behalf.
