Living Wills and Health Care Directives – The Importance of Legally Binding Documents in Minnesota

Living Wills and Health Care Directives are essential legal documents that have been used for many years in Minnesota and around the country. A living will began as a document merely suggesting one’s wishes concerning end-of-life decisions. Doctors were in control when it came to making important end-of-life decisions. However, they would collaborate with the family, and they were ultimately the ones who decided which medical options would be best.

Since the days of a living will were merely a suggestion, the legislature has created laws that now authorize powers of attorney for health care decisions that allow selected people to make decisions for you when you are unable. The suggestive living will has now evolved into the legally binding health care directive and is of the utmost importance in medical, end-of-life decision-making, and estate planning. With over 100 years of combined legal experience, the attorneys at Jeddeloh Snyder Stommes can assist you with estate planning and elder law.

Health Care Directives – Why You Need One

Regardless of age, it would be best to have a legally binding healthcare directive in place. Serious accidents and brief illnesses can occur anytime, whether you are elderly or youthful. Unanticipated end-of-life decisions can be some of the most stressful times a family ever goes through, and it is essential to be as prepared as possible. Having a health care directive plan in place can not only be less stressful for your family but can be handled exactly the way you wish. In times of crisis, your family and caregivers must have the benefit of knowing exactly the way you would like the situation to be handled and making the appropriate decisions based on your wishes.
