What is a Medical Durable Power of Attorney?

A Medical Durable Power of Attorney document authorizes another person to make healthcare decisions for you if you can no longer make or communicate such decisions.  This document remains in effect until either revoked or death occurs.  You should review and/or update this document every two years to ensure all decisions are still valid.  Without a Medical Durable Power of Attorney, the family member making the healthcare decision for you may not be the individual you would select. 

To help assist you we have provided you with the document necessary to complete this process.
