Planning for Incapacity
These plans are extremely important as the detail how you will be cared for upon the event of your physical or mental incapacitation. The type of care outlined by these plans can range from simple tasks (i.e. buying groceries or paying bills) to more important decisions (i.e. selling property or making critical medical decisions). Incapacity planning includes a variety of different methods, such as
- Property Powers of Attorney
- Health Care Powers of Attorney
- Living Wills or Advance Health Care Directives
All of these methods can help to ensure that you are properly cared for and the decisions about how you are cared for remain with someone that you have selected and placed your trust in.
