Power of attorney for health care in California

A power of attorney for health care in California is the topic of this blog post. The statutes governing health care powers of attorney in California are found in sections 4670 through 4743 inclusive, of the California Probate Code.  A power of attorney for health care in California may be designated as a durable power of attorney for health care which means that the powers given to the agent by the principal will continue to exist even if the person who signed the durable health care power of attorney becomes incapacitated and can no longer make their own decisions regarding their health care unless the document provides otherwise.

A power of attorney for health care may also include a statement of desires concerning life-prolonging treatment, services and procedures as well as a nomination of the agent or another person to be conservator of the person for the principal if one is necessary.

Health care powers of attorney in California must be dated and acknowledged before a notary public.

As with any power of attorney the decision as to whether or not to have one prepared as well as what to include should be carefully considered beforehand.
