What Is A Power Of Attorney And Why It Is Important

Some other types of POAs include The Health Care Power of Attorney, which grants the attorney-in-fact or agent the power to make medical decisions for the client in the event that the client becomes unconscious, unable to make sound decisions, or mentally incompetent; and The Durable Power of Attorney, which is basically a health care, general, or special power of attorney with a durability provision to keep the power of attorney effective. This Power of Attorney can help when you need to look into life care for your relative.

The client may also choose a durable power of attorney as a means of preparation in case they become mentally incompetent as a result of an injury or illness.
