Power of Attorney for Healthcare

A “durable power of attorney for healthcare” is an advance health care directive. It allows you to name an agent to make healthcare decisions for you, including the power to consent to or withdraw from any type of medical treatment, even if death results. The agent may exercise the powers given throughout the principal's life, even after the principal becomes disabled, unless it is revoked or a court revokes it.
