Health Care Proxy

A health care proxy enables you to appoint, in advance, someone you trust to make health care decisions for you should you become temporarily or permanently incapacitated to such an extent (due to, for example, dementia, stroke or bad car accident) that you are unable to make these decisions for yourself. Your agent can make all the decisions you would be asked to make were you to still be competent, including the decision to terminate life-extending treatments.
