3. What is a Healthcare Power of Attorney?
  Unlike the living will, which usually is limited to terminally ill patients, a Healthcare Power of Attorney appoints someone to make healthcare decisions for you if you are unable. A Healthcare Power of Attorney allows for decisions to be made in the event they were not specifically outlined in your Living Will. (CreateLegalDocs.com provides a Healthcare Power of Attorney free of charge with the purchase of a Living Will).
