It’s one thing to name a person to make health care decisions on your behalf. It’s another thing entirely to ensure that this person understands exactly what you want to happen. Here’s what we have to say about this:
“A Proxy Declaration is a type of Advanced directive that lets you designate a “proxy” or “agent” who will make decisions about your health care, including decisions about life sustaining treatments, if you can no longer make them yourself because of incapacity.”
Take your time when choosing your agent and deciding on the type of treatment you want to receive.
