Health Care Proxy
health care proxy is a document by which one individual (the
principal) appoints another (the health care agent) to make health
care decisions for him or her should he or she be unable to make
or communicate such decisions for himself or herself. The health
care agent can even make decisions concerning the use or terminating
the use of life support systems. Again, this is extremely important

or infirm. There is no way to predict when an accident might happen
or when such a document will be needed. Both are recommended as
an important part of every estate plan.
