Residents in Michigan are getting older. With old age come multiple medical issues. Many people will need to seek the care of medical professionals at some point in their lifetimes. Some may be unable to make their own decisions when it comes to their medical needs. When people are unable to make their own medical decisions, they may need someone to do that for them. If a person has a medical power of attorney, this can be a lot easier.
A medical power of attorney holder can make decisions on someone else's behalf when that person is no longer able to make medical decisions on his or her own. This can be extremely helpful in cases where a person is no longer conscious or is otherwise incapacitated. However, it is important that the right person is allotted the medical power of attorney.
