Health Care Power of Attorney
A document that appoints an individual (an “agent”) to make health care decisions for someone else when the grantor of the power is incapacitated. The document is sometimes referred to as a “Health Care Proxy.” If an individual’s health declines to the point that they are no longer able to communicate with others, the agent will communicate to doctors and other health care providers on that person’s behalf.
