Healthcare Power of Attorney

Completing a Healthcare Power of Attorney form is a part of your Advance Directives, legal documents that specify your care if you aren’t able to make decisions for yourself in the case of illness or injury. Selecting your Healthcare Power of Attorney means you are selecting a person to communicate for you if you can’t communicate for yourself.

It’s important you select someone you trust to discuss your best interests with your doctors, reflect your beliefs and act on your behalf.
