1. Durable power of attorney

A power of attorney, a.k.a POA, allows an appointed individual to take legal responsibility to make decisions for another individual at their request on certain matters like health care and finances. Usually, this person is someone from your family or someone you can trust entirely, such as your best friend.

However, if a POA is durable, it means that the appointed person can make decisions on your behalf when you become incapacitated due to a medical condition, severe mental impairment, or after a serious accident. A durable power of attorney is a must when you’re preparing for a surgery that could go wrong.

To sum things up, in these times of uncertainty, it’s best to contact your lawyer in order to eliminate any ambiguity.
