One important part of your estate plan is to prepare for your own medical treatment, particularly your treatment in the event you are unable to express your wishes. If you become incapacitated or unable to communicate, you can ensure you receive the healthcare you desire by creating advance healthcare directives.
When creating advance healthcare directives, seek the assistance of an experienced Jackson MS estate planning attorney. At Shows & Smith Law Firm, PLLC, we understand the importance of being prepared for the future, which is why we work hard to create thoroughly vetted and complete estate plans. We form personal relationships with all of our clients, and we strive to have them come back to us for all of their legal needs. Some have even come back to us for over 35 years.

There are two types of documents that everyone should create as part of their estate plan. The first document names a person, either a family member or very close friend, to take charge of your healthcare when you are incapacitated. The second is a document that details the type of medical treatment you would like to receive in certain situations, also known as a living will.
The person you name to be the director of your healthcare should be someone you trust very closely, as they will be allowed to speak and discuss your condition with doctors on your behalf. They will also be able to make important medical decisions that may not be expressly covered in your living will. An attorney will be able to advise you on a good choice for a candidate for this particularly important role.
