The most important power of attorney, the medical power of attorney is made in anticipation of a medical emergency, or disability. That is, if you are in an accident, or suffering an illness that can leave you unable to articulate their desires, a medical power of attorney allows you to choose in advance who will represent your interests, and may impose certain restrictions on them. If you do not have a medical power, in the event of incapacity your family may be forced to seek a court order to appoint a guardian who is authorized to monitor your care and to fulfill your wishes regarding their care. A court may not appoint the person you would have preferred. Is it uncomfortable discussing this issue with your family, but is best done before a crisis.
