Asset Protection During Your Lifetime
It is very important to have documents in place to protect yourself in the event that you are unable to give instructions concerning the management of your affairs or unable to handle the day-to-day tasks such as paying bills and maintaining your property. A Power of Attorney enables you to appoint another person or persons to take charge of all personal and financial matters during your lifetime if you are unable to do so.
When it comes to your health, it is essential to appoint someone else to make decisions concerning your health care and placement in the event that you are unable to do so. Anyone who is admitted to Hospital or a Care Facility is requested to sign a Personal Directive confirming the name of a person for consultation purposes and to act as your delegate for all matters pertaining to your health care. It is preferable to sign a Personal Directive when you are well, and we encourage our clients to sign a Power of Attorney, a Personal Directive, and a Will in order to be fully prepared for any event.
