Understanding Your Elder Law & Estate Planning Options
Experienced Preparation Of Health Care Proxies And Living Wills
If you are someday injured or suffer from a condition that makes it impossible for you to speak or communicate in other ways, you still need to make sure that your intentions are known and followed regarding medical treatment that you receive. In order to preserve your intentions, you can create an advance directive, or living will, that will legally protect your wishes in the future.
This type of document will outline what measures you want taken, or not taken, if you are unable to communicate your wishes. Without a health care proxy, one can expect the time-consuming process of having the Probate Court appoint a guardian.
At Albanese Law, LLC, we help families meet immediate and long-term planning goals through health care proxies, living wills and other types of important estate planning documents. For nearly a decade, attorney Matthew Albanese has been providing skilled and knowledgeable legal services to clients in Boston and throughout eastern Massachusetts.
Documents Designed To Honor Your Most Personal Wishes
Attorney Matthew Albanese can help you create an advance directive, as well as a health care proxy, which will name a person who can make medical care decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so. The health care proxy will look at the advance directive for information regarding the medical treatment that should be provided if the time comes to make those decisions.
While these are uncomfortable topics for many people, it is better to be prepared now than to force your relatives to deal with challenging situations in the future where your wishes may not be followed. Our firm will take the time to understand your values and your wishes and create documents that satisfy these desires.
