Long Island Health Care Proxy Attorneys

A health care proxy is a document wherein you establish your wishes with regard to your Medical Care should you become incapacitated and unable to make decisions on your own. Through the use of a healthcare proxy you name an individual who you trust and have faith in to step in and help you make decisions concerning medical treatment should you become incapacitated and unable to make these decisions on your own.

A Health Care proxy only comes into effect if you are so ill or incapacitated you can not make medical decisions for yourself. The person who you appoint in the Health Care Proxy, will make medical decisions for you based on your best interests and any instructions you have previously given them or as set forth in a Living Will.
