Nevada estate planning can include healthcare decisions

| Feb 8, 2013 | Heirs & Beneficiaries

There are many elements to be considered as a person in Nevada begins the estate planning process. Commonly, people understand the need to choose to use tools for estate planning such as a will or trust to disperse their assets at the time of their death. What they may not consider are the additional documents that can make a plan complete.

One of the important documents that often needs to be created as a part of estate planning efforts is the healthcare directive. This document appoints a person to act as the power of attorney holder for a person when it comes to medical decisions. The holder of the power of attorney can make decisions such as the amount of life-sustaining medical care to be offered and whether a person wishes to be an organ donor.

Deciding who should be the holder of the power of attorney can be an important decision in estate planning. In many cases, the responsibility falls to the spouse of the person creating the plan. However, there may be other people in a person’s life better suited to making medical decisions in the time that they are needed. Before making a final decision, an individual in Nevada should consult the person that they are considering appointing as the medical power of attorney in estate planning documents.

For some, the estate planning process may appear complicated. There are many available tools that can be customized to fit an individual’s needs and wishes. To ensure that all necessary arrangements are made in the estate planning process, it may do well for an individual to consider reviewing the applicable documents and rules as they enter into the estate planning process.
