Advanced Directives: Make Your Wishes Known
Antonoplos & Associates estate planning attorneys assist clients throughout Washington D.C. and Maryland with their Advanced Directives. Whether it is the preparation of a Healthcare Power of Attorney, Living Will, Medical Visitation Directive or HIPAA Waiver, or other medical directives, our team of estate planning attorneys has the experience and knowledge to properly guide you.
Antonoplos & Associates estate planning attorneys will help ensure that your living wills and other advance directives are clearly written. We make sure your documents are legally enforceable, and contain your instructions regarding your preferences for medical care. Our proprietary advance directives clearly set out our your choices for doctors and caregivers in the event that you are terminally ill, seriously injured, in a coma, in the late stages of dementia or near the end of life.
Plan Ahead To Avoid Confusion
We strongly recommend that you plan ahead with the preparation of advanced directives. You can get the medical care you want, avoid unnecessary suffering and relieve caregivers of decisionmaking burdens during moments of crisis. Having clear advanced directives also helps reduce confusion or disagreement about the choices you would want people to make on your behalf.
Remember, advance directives aren’t just for older individuals. Unexpected situations can happen at any age, so it’s important for all individuals to prepare these documents. We recommend that anyone over the age of 18 have proper advanced directives in place.
