Health Care Directives For Loved Ones In Nursing Homes
As we age, there is a possibility that our mental faculties will diminish. Although it can be challenging to think about, there are legal safety measures to protect yourself and your loved ones.
At the law office of Prieto, Marigliano, Holbert, & Prieto, LLC, in Atlanta, we help clients throughout Georgia create the health care directives they need to effectively plan for end-of-life medical decisions.
The Importance Of Health Care Directives/Living Wills In Georgia
Having a health care directive can save family members from the feelings of stress or guilt that may arise when they are called upon to make difficult decisions about the care of their loved ones. Imagine being contacted by the doctor for your mother or father, husband or wife, and being told your loved one won’t get any better. When you’re caught up in the grief and emotion of the moment, the burden of being the decision-maker can make it especially challenging. Having a health care directive can help alleviate some of that pressure, by allowing your loved one to make some decisions in advance.
