Although everyone would like to believe that they will remain healthy and mentally sharp throughout their elder years, the truth is that no one has this guarantee. It’s very possible to lose the ability to make your own decisions, whether through the aging process or because of a sudden injury, so it’s important to take steps to ensure that your wishes for your medical care are known and carried out. You can do this by appointing a power of attorney to make these decisions on your behalf should you become incapacitated. Our team at the office of Robert G. Spaugh, Attorney at Law, can help you through every step of this process, as well as with the other parts of estate planning.
You can also appoint a power of attorney for more than just medical decisions. For example, our team recommends creating financial power of attorney documents as well, which will allow the individual you name to make financial decisions on your behalf. As our team helps prepare these documents, we will work with you to ensure that your wishes for your medical care and financial estate are made known in detail, so that the people you are entrusting with this power are able to carry them out.
Our team is proud to serve the Winston-Salem, North Carolina community, and we want to help you be prepared for anything. If you want to ensure that your wishes are carried out even when you are incapacitated, we encourage you to give us a call to get started on power of attorney documents.
