What is a Power of Attorney?
A Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal document that allows you to appoint a person or organization to manage your affairs if you become unable to do so.
There are generally two types of power of attorneys, medical (health care) and financial (property). Power of attorneys for health care and property enable your designated agent to act regarding all or some of your very necessary health care and property decisions. This is particularly useful in event you are unable to act due to disability or incapacity.
Your Power of Attorney/Agent must be:
• Over the age of 18,
• Able to make his/her own decisions,
• Someone other than your primary healthcare provider (such as your doctor or caregiver).
Without power of attorneys, a legal proceeding and court approval may be necessary to execute decisions.
