Estate Planning Documents

Durable Power of Attorney (DPOA)

A DPOA allows you to chose who will make decisions for you and act on your behalf regarding your care, money, property, and other legal matters, either when you become mentally unable to make these decisions (incapacitated) or immediately when you sign the form.

This person is called your attorney-in-fact. Your attorney-in-fact can act in your place and make all decisions about your money, property, legal issues and health care, except whether or not to administer life support and artificial food and hydration (tube feeding). Your attorney-in-fact will NOT be able to act for you or your estate after you die.

If you do not have a DPOA, a family member can not make decisions and/or act on your behalf regarding your money, property and legal matters unless that person is legally listed on the account, property or claim. A power of attorney must have specific durable language to stay in effect if you become incapacitated.

Health Care Power of Attorney (HCPA)

A Health Care Power of Attorney allows you to chose who will make your health care decisions for you when you are unable to make these decisions (incapacitated) or immediately when you sign the form.

This person will only be allowed to make decisions regarding your health. This does NOT include power over money, property or other legal issues.You can direct your Health Care Proxy to withhold life support, artificial food and hydration (tube feeding) or other medical treatment (you will receive pain medication, unless you refuse it in the document). This document allows you to donate organs and direct the disposition of your remains.

Advance Directive for Health Care (“Living Will”)

An Advance Directive for Health Care includes what many refer to as a “living will” and other provisions regarding end of life issues. The law assumes that you want to be kept alive, unless there is evidence that you do not wish to be given life support or tube feeding.

An advance directive allows you to: (1) chose to refuse or discontinue life support, artificial food and hydration (tube feeding) or other medical treatment (you will receive pain medication, unless you refuse it in the directive); (2) designate someone as your health care proxy to make these decisions on your behalf; (3) donate organs. Family members can NOT make these decisions for you.

The attending physician must believe that it is YOUR wish to refuse or discontinue life sustaining treatment. A properly executed Advance Directive or other document including the “living will” language, will inform your doctor of your wishes. You can revoke the directive at any time.

Do Not Rescusitate form (DNR)

A DNR instructs health care providers NOT to perform CPR on you. YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE CPR AT ANY TIME after you sign a DNR form, even if you are otherwise healthy. If you execute a DNR because you have a terminal condition, you will NOT receive CPR when your heart stops or for other reasons either (ie. heart attack, choking, drowning, car accident, etc.). A doctor or health care proxy may execute a DNR form for you after you have become incapacitated (unable to make your own decisions). You should consult your physician and attorney prior to executing a DNR, because it MAY RESULT IN DEATH.
