Powers of Attorney for Health Care and Living Wills

Self-determination throughout the course of life

Powers of attorney for health care and living wills serve as a legal basis for your care if you are no longer legally competent or are incapable of voicing your own decision on a medical treatment.

With a power of attorney for health care, you choose a person who will act on your behalf if you are incapacitated. Otherwise, the court will appoint a guardian and he/she might not be the person you would have chosen.

Individual answers and solutions that are tailored to your specific wishes are important in case you lose your ability to make your own decisions due to a terminal disease. Clear instructions for the authorised persons or the doctors as outlined in your living will are necessary if you choose to refuse individual (or all) life-prolonging measures.

We will gladly take the time to explain all important issues in an initial consultation.
