Power Of Attorney
By assigning a power of attorney to an individual, you are entrusting them with the responsibility of ensuring that your wishes are respected, even if you cannot make decisions for yourself. It is important to note that a power of attorney has the ability to act on your behalf for legal and financial matters but for medical decisions, you must designative an individual through a representative agreement.
