Malonis, we can put together a comprehensive legal health care proxy so you can protect your rights, your wishes, and safeguard everyone from disputes or confusion if the time comes where someone needs to make very important decisions for you.
A health care proxy is essentially a legal document that specifically designates a person who can legally decide your medical care, treatments, life support issues, or any other medical decisions if there comes a time when you are no longer able to do so. While many may assume this is a matter to be considered when you reach a certain age or are diagnosed with a specific illness, the need for a health care proxy can arise at any age.
