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
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
- 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.
