Have you designated someone to make medical decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated or unable to manage your own affairs? The document to accomplish this is called an Advance Directive for Health Care. Its use can greatly simplify matters for your loved ones and can help ensure that your wishes are respected. An experienced lawyer can help you prepare and execute a document that meets your individualized needs.
At the office of Patrick J. Gibbs, P.C., Attorney at Law, I have been in practice for more than 40 years and since 1992 I have focused on matters related to estate planning, wills, trusts, and estates. Advance health care directives are part of the estate planning process. I have personally prepared more than 2,000 estate plans. I take a comprehensive approach, looking at how your advance directive fits into your overall estate planning strategy. I emphasize solutions, taking the time to health care proxy and help you choose what suits your circumstances.
I will help you with all matters related to the preparation and implementation of an Advance Directive for Health Care (formerly known in Georgia as a living will). The advance medical directive allows you to identify in advance who will make medical decisions for you if you cannot. It also allows you to specify that certain types of treatment may or may not be used such as life support or feeding tubes.
An advance medical directive, also known as a health care proxy, will help minimize the stress and anxiety your loved ones feel when you are suffering serious health issues. You can expressly state your wishes, relieving them of the burden of trying to determine the best course of action. This can be a blessing, particularly when you suffer from a terminal illness such as cancer.
