The Power of Attorney for Health Care is one of the most important documents one can include in his or her estate plan. The Power of Attorney for Health Care makes it possible for adults in Wisconsin to authorize other individuals to make health care decisions on their behalf should they become incapacitated. Attorney Stacy Vogeltanz from Ross Estate Planning says authorization does not occur between spouses without the proper documentation or a drawn out process.
Vogeltanz says it is always a good idea to name back-ups for Power of Attorney in Health Care in case both parents are involved in an accident. This is the first in a two part series on Power of Attorney . The second in the series will be on the financial aspect of Power of Attorney and will be featured next Saturday.
