It’s a scenario that plays out too often on the movie screen or in the pages of a novel – a terrible accident or illness leaves someone unable to communicate with doctors and family. Loved ones disagree and argue about what type of medical care to administer, sometimes wasting precious time and delaying treatment. Unfortunately, this situation occurs quite often in real life and it can add stress and confusion to an already difficult situation.
Advance directives such as a Living Will, Healthcare Power of Attorney and Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) will be your voice in the event that you are unable to communicate.
Having these documents drawn up now ensures that that your loved ones will know the type of care you desire. Make your first call to Babb & Bixler.
