Make Sure Your Wishes Are Known

Should you become incapacitated from an injury or illness and are no longer able to communicate your wishes, it may become necessary for loved ones and doctors to turn to your estate plan for guidance. Advanced Directives can provide the people caring for you with instructions for how you should be treated if you are approaching the end of your life or need medical intervention to preserve your life. You can also designate someone you trust to make medical decisions for you.

At Legacy Planning Group, we know it can be difficult for clients to consider themselves in such a situation. We strive to provide people with the compassionate and down-to-earth guidance they need to know their options and choose the ones that make them feel most confident about the future. By being prepared for uncertain times today, you can help your loved ones and medical care staff know how you should be treated if you cannot communicate your wishes yourself.

Planning for your future medical care is a crucial step toward building a comprehensive estate plan. Take this step today by reaching out to Legacy Planning Group for help.

Why Do I Need Advanced Directives?

Advanced Directives are important because they guide the course of your medical care during times when you may be too ill or injured to answer questions about how you want to be treated. Although Advanced Directives are often talked about in terms of end-of-life scenarios, any situation during which you may be incapacitated is relevant whether you eventually survive or pass away.

Incapacitation may be caused by a myriad of factors, such as the following:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Coma
  • Cancer
  • Dementia
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Severe mental illness

It’s important to consider the factors that could lead to you becoming incapacitated. This is because no one is particularly immune to all of the risks that may necessitate Advanced Directives to ensure proper treatment is carried out.

What Kinds of Decisions Can I Make?

Advances in medical technology make it possible to save and preserve lives like never before. Despite these advancements, people may reject certain treatments that conflict with their religious beliefs or personal preferences for care.

Advanced Directives can help you decide whether or not you’re willing to accept life support treatments such as:

  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • Breathing machines or ventilators
  • Dialysis
  • Feeding tubes
  • Blood and water transfusions
  • Surgery
  • Medications

You can also state specific wishes that could help you feel more comfortable toward the end of your life. Decisions about whether you want to be an organ donor, have an autopsy done, as well as specific funeral or burial wishes can also be addressed.

Reach out to us for legal assistance by submitting an online contact form or calling (310) 439-3704 today.
