There may come a point in anyone's life where he or she cannot communicate his or her own wishes for the health care he or she wants to receive. In these cases, having an advance directive as part of your estate plan can provide clarity for your doctors and your family.
In Nashua, New Hampshire, our estate planning attorneys at Wolfson & Bernazzani, PLLC, have more than two decades of experience and are prepared to help you work on any advance directive. By taking the time to understand the unique goals and needs of our clients, we have helped hundreds of individuals draft up documentation that addresses all issues of incapacitation in a way that is completely aligned with their goals. We are ready to help you do the same.
Clearly Communicate Your Wishes During A Stressful Time
Depending on circumstances, advance directives can be extremely clarifying and give peace of mind. These components of an estate plan allow someone to designate a family member or another person to make medical decisions in the event of incapacitation. They also spell out your wishes for:
- You wish to be fed by tube to stay alive or be hooked up to a breathing machine
- You want doctors to try to resuscitate you
- You want to be an organ and/or tissue donor
Without an advance directive, family members or those close to you may not be certain how to address medical decisions, which is when painful, emotional disputes can arise. These disputes can lead to litigation and strained relations among family members. Our lawyers can draft an advance directive that leaves you in charge of your health care decision-making process.
