Empowering Seniors: The Importance of Healthcare Directives in Connecticut

| May 23, 2024 | Firm News

In Connecticut, healthcare directives play a crucial role in empowering seniors to make informed decisions about their medical care, even when they may no longer be able to communicate their wishes. At Stillman & Associates, LLC, we have over three decades of experience in this area, so we understand the significance of healthcare directives and what is paramount in ensuring that our clients’ healthcare preferences are honored and respected. From living wills to healthcare proxies, and even the creation of Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (MOLST), our experienced attorney is dedicated to guiding seniors through the process of creating comprehensive healthcare directives tailored to their individual needs and values.

A Living Will allows individuals to outline their preferences for medical treatment in the event they become incapacitated and are unable to communicate their wishes. By clearly documenting preferences regarding life-sustaining treatments, such as CPR and life support, seniors can alleviate the burden on their loved ones and ensure that their healthcare decisions align with their values and beliefs. Additionally, appointing a healthcare proxy empowers individuals to designate a trusted advocate to make medical decisions on their behalf, further enhancing control over their healthcare journey.

Navigating the legal landscape of healthcare directives in Connecticut demands experience, expertise, and foresight. Our firm is committed to providing compassionate guidance and unwavering support to seniors and their families as they navigate the complexities of healthcare decision-making. With our comprehensive approach to healthcare directives, seniors can gain peace of mind knowing that their healthcare preferences will be honored, and their dignity will be preserved, regardless of the circumstances.
