A Health Care Power of Attorney documents a person’s wishes about who they want to serve as their agent to make healthcare decisions for them if something happens and they are unable to make their own decisions. The agent must act consistently with the principal's wishes. A Healthcare POA is important because it can eliminate the need for court involvement to appoint a guardian if the person becomes incapacitated and needs assistance with personal & health matters. It can also reduce family stress and disagreements over what health care a person would want in a particular situation.


A Living Will lets medical personnel and family know what  a person's wishes  are with regards to life sustaining treatment.  Specifically it concerns use of artificial nutrition and hydration if the person is terminally ill or permanently unconscious.
