Legal guardianship may be necessary for elderly individuals who are unable to make arrangements for their own affairs. Establishing guardianship can be done prior to this situation. An attorney from our firm can help safeguard your rights and protect your wishes by assisting you with establishing a legal guardian who will follow your wishes when you are unable to make these wishes known on your own.
Health Care Proxy and Living Will
In a health care proxy, a person is appointed to make decisions regarding your healthcare in the event that you are unable to do so. A living will is a separate document that specifies your wishes as to instructions for extraordinary lifesaving measures including life support, and blood transfusions as well as your wishes on organ or tissue donation. Establishing a proxy and living will can help you rest assured that your wishes will be carried out legally and fully.
