Purpose

Priorities

  • Help adults complete a Power of Attorney (POA) for Healthcare and place on file within the electronic medical record (EMR).
  • Build community awareness for why POA for Healthcare is important.
  • Provide education to assist in the completion of healthcare advance directives.
  • Focus on healthcare advance directives and not on financial POA documents.
