Posts about “Health care proxy”

A health care proxy is a document that names someone as your agent in terms of your health care. If you’re unable to speak for yourself in an emergency, your health care proxy steps in to make these decisions on your behalf. They work with doctors and medical staff to ensure you get the healthcare you would prefer. While nobody wants to think about being in a situation where you can’t make your own choices, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
