Posts about “Medical power of attorney”

A medical power of attorney is a way to ensure you get the medical treatment you want if you’re unable to make your own decisions.

The person enabled to make decisions is known as your agent or surrogate. This person steps in if you’re no longer able to communicate on your own due to illness or injury. Who would you trust as your medical agent?
