Do you need a Living Will Form or a Health Care Power of Attorney form?

The purpose of a Living Will declaration is to document your wish that life-sustaining treatment, including artificially or technologically supplied nutrition and hydration, be withheld or withdrawn if you are unable to make informed medical decisions and are in a terminal condition or in a permanently unconscious state.1. Life-sustaining treatment means any health care, including artificially or technologically supplied nutrition and hydration, that will serve mainly to prolong the process of dying.2. Terminal condition or terminal illness means an irreversible, incurable and untreatable condition caused by disease, illness or injury. Your physician and one other physician will have examined you and believe that you cannot recover and that death is likely to occur within a relatively short time if you do not receive life-sustaining treatment.3. Permanently unconscious state means an irreversible condition in which you are permanently unaware of yourself and your surroundings. Your physician and one other physician must examine you and agree that the total loss of higher brain function has left you unable to feel pain or suffering.Having a Living Will does not affect the responsibility of health care personnel to provide comfort care to you. Comfort care means any measure taken to diminish pain or discomfort, but not to postpone death.
In most states, a Living Will is applicable only to individuals in a terminal condition or a permanently unconscious state. If you wish to direct medical treatment in other circumstances, you should prepare a Health Care Power of Attorney.The Health Care Power of Attorney form gives the person you designate (agent or attorney-in-fact) the authority to make most health care (including dental, nursing, psychological, and surgical) decisions for you if you lose the capacity to make informed health care decisions for yourself. This authority is effective only when your attending physician determines that you have lost the capacity to make informed health care decisions for yourself. As long as you have the capacity to make informed health care decisions for yourself, you retain the right to make all medical and other health care decisions. You may also limit the health care decisions that your agent will have the authority to make. The authority of the agent to make health care decisions for you generally will include the authority to give informed consent, to refuse to give informed consent, or to withdraw informed consent to any care, treatment, service, or procedure to maintain, diagnose, or treat a physical or mental condition.

Commercial Debt Assistance – Easier Than Most

Almost every business sector in America has drowned in the recent economic recession that was the biggest in the modern American age. The recent drop in the prices of commercial blocks, in addition to the rising rate of unemployment is pressuring investors in the real estate business sector who are struggling to pay their loans. Nonetheless, Obama’s unique commercial debt assistance plan is carrying hope to this pivotal business market.Unemployment has skyrocketed to a level that is threatening the standard of living of a high percentage of American families. Accordingly, more people didn’t afford to pay rents and therefore, preferred to move in with others to decrease their rent monthly pays. This explains the dipping of the occupancy rates of most apartment blocks across America. It is a simple equation; if occupancy is low, the business owner’s income will also decrease. As a matter of fact, about more than 25% of commercial block mortgage holders are having trouble meeting their debt monthly payments and are seeking modifications for their commercial mortgage loans.Obama’s new debt modification program is a rescue plan for commercial mortgage holders who are a step away from foreclosure. The new inclusion criteria have made almost every commercial mortgage holder eligible for debt assistance. Also, some borrowers are even eligible for receiving federal financial aids to help them get off the ground. The eligibility for commercial loan assistance is determined with the aid of the following:- The occupancy rate of the property which would be formulated into an estimate of the monthly income of the business.- Creditability of the mortgage holder.- The net value to mortgage ratio.- History of the borrower as regards punctuality in delivering monthly payments.Eligibility for commercial loan modification programs can be easily examined through the internet. Within a few minutes, many online services can help you determine if you are to be approved for commercial dept assistance programs.Getting the right lawyer can sometimes be the key factor in closing up a commercial loan modification deal. Your attorney should present a loan modification proposal to your lenders. The proposal needs to be formulated by an experienced professional and should include reasons for your asked modification. Financial hardship and decreased occupancy rates should be thoroughly proved with the proper documents and legal papers.Obama is expected to chip in more than 5 billion dollars in the next 10 years to save the real estate market. Commercial debt assistance is a federal rescue plan for the strongly hit real estate business market.
