The group's legal plans are particularly important in emergencies. They offer benefits that a person can use to get out of a difficult situation or prepare for the worst and be ready for it when bad times come. The coronavirus pandemic makes many people think of situations they ignored earlier. They think they can no longer put certain things o
Imagining a Dark Side
Death comes to all of us, but it does not always come suddenly. A car accident or heart attack can be a surprise, but the victim may linger. Immediate death does not occur and the individual is sent to the hospital for treatment. This is where a sad episode slowly develops.
The victim may be in a coma and not responding. The instructions that this person has for treatment are unknown. Caregivers are responsible for trying to save a person's life, but they do not know what the individual wants to do as far as medical care. When, for example, there are no other instructions, the life support system remains on. A team member on a legal level should not put family and loved ones through heartache looking at a body that is not responding. A living will provides the guidance required and this is a prepaid benefit for legal services that is especially important these days. This is something that not all group law planning programs take into account, but that is not the case with us.
Nationwide prepaid legal services have both a living will and medical powers. These are possible ways to close a sad episode.
Living conditions provide instructions
Hospitals need to know what a person wants to do in terms of medical care. Living wills provide the necessary information to make the right choice. If a person does not want certain types of medical treatment, this is stated in the paperwork. An important document to include is the medical authorizations.
The decision still has to be made and a person with medical powers will make the difficult choices. The individual is entrusted with a group member in a legal plan with the authority to tell the hospital or caregiver what to do, based on what the plan member has said to that person. It makes the process much easier and faster. Granted, no one wants to see a person die, but few people want to see a loved one on life support for weeks or months. Medical power of attorney is a prepaid benefit for legal services that can effectively provide family members with the closure required to mourn.
