Plan for the Unexpected
No matter what your age, you should designate a Health Care Proxy, someone who will have the authority to make medical decisions in the event you are unable to make such decisions for yourself (an agent). In choosing an agent, remember that the agent should be a family member or friend that you trust to follow your instructions.
Once the health care proxy is drawn up, the agent should keep the original document. The principal should have a copy and the principal’s physician should keep a copy with that individual’s medical records.
