Why Do I Need a Power of Attorney?

Life is full of surprises and unanticipated events. If something happens and you become incapacitated or otherwise unable to make decisions about your life independently, those decisions may be made by a public guardian or trustee. By establishing a power of attorney, you get to choose someone you trust to manage your personal affairs in the event of incapacitation. When you establish a health care directive or health care power of attorney, you are choosing someone to make decisions about your health and medical care if you become incapacitated. While a health care power of attorney is typically thought of as a tool for older individuals, young people can also benefit. When unanticipated events or accidents resulting in a coma or brain damage occur, having a health care directive in place is of tremendous value.
