ADVANCE MEDICAL DIRECTIVE - An advance healthcare directive, also known as living will, personal directive, advance directive, medical directive or advance decision, is a legal document in which a person specifies what actions should be taken for their health, if they are no longer able to make decisions for themselves because of illness or incapacity.
POWER OF ATTORNEY - A power of attorney is a very important estate planning tool. A durable power of attorney can be general or limited in scope, but it remains in effect after you become incapacitated. Without a durable power of attorney, if you become incapacitated, no one can represent you unless a court appoints a conservator or guardian.
LAST WILL & TESTAMENT A last will & testament is a legal document by which a person, the testator, expresses their wishes as to how their property is to be distributed at death, and names one or more persons, the executor, to manage the estate though its final distribution.
