Kentucky Advanced Health Care Directives

An advanced health care directive provides instructions given by individuals specifying what actions should be taken for their health in the event that they are no longer able to make decisions due to illness or incapacity. These health care directives can be recorded as written documents that specify the level of medical treatment to be provided in the event of a mental illness or incapacity (Living Will) or the health care directives can appoint a person to make such decisions on their behalf (Durable Power of Attorney). Cynthia encourages an open and honest discussion concerning end-of-life scenarios and encourages her clients to specifically state how they wish to be treated.

Kentucky Living Wills

A living will is a written statement of a person’s health care and medical wishes but does not appoint another person to make health care decisions. A living will can provide specific written directives about the course of treatment that is to be followed by health care providers and caregivers. A living will can be used to limit the various kinds of medical treatment rendered to medical patients. Specifically, a living will can be used to express the wishes of a severely injured or incapacitated person pertaining to the foregoing of food, water, or utilizations of life-continuing procedures or machines. Please contact The Greene Law Firm, PLLC and ask for Cynthia Greene to begin working with a dedicated end-of-life attorney to ensure that your final wishes are preserved in an official and legal form that can be presented to hospitals or medical providers.

Kentucky Durable Power of Attorney

A Durable Power of Attorney can serve to allow a previously selected person the authority to make legally binding decisions on behalf of an incapacitated person in the event of mental illness or physical injury. For example, under a durable power of attorney, the previously selected person is allowed to make legally binding decisions on behalf of a person that receives an injury or mental illness and becomes incapacitated.

End of Life Issues to Consider

Who will make decisions for you when you are no longer able to make decisions yourself?
What kind of medical treatment do you want? Or, what kind of medical treatment do you not want?
How comfortable do you want to be? (For example, do you want to receive pain medication?)
Funeral or memorial service plans?
