The Importance of a Power of Attorney
Although we always want to be in control of our choices, there may come a time when we are no longer able to act on our own affairs or make sound decisions. No matter your age or phase of life, the risk that you may become incapacitated is present and only increases as you grow older.
Incapacity can happen to anyone because of any horrible issue, whether it be dementia, a serious illness, or if you are badly hurt; this could cause you to lose the ability to communicate or make informed decisions. No matter what the situation, decisions will still need to be made when determining your medical care and management of assets and properties. Without a designated power of attorney, this burden will fall on your loved ones that may not have the authority or the knowledge and experience to take action. This could cause your assets to go unmanaged or conflict amongst family members.
Take control of your future and choose who would like to have as your agent acting for you and making your decisions. Contact Cross Law APC today to designate a power of attorney.
