Establish or Review your Oregon Durable Power of Attorney
Peace of mind for you and your loved ones
In Oregon a Power of Attorney, or POA, is a way to help families have a course of action for when severe illness, injury, or incapacitation happen. Whether from traumatic accident or serious illness, being unable to make decisions for your healthcare and/or finances can be a scary situation for everyone involved.
Thankfully, we can establish legal documents that account for this possibility. In the midst of difficult circumstances, a POA gives you and your loved ones some peace of mind.
What is a POA?
Should you be unable to make decisions for yourself, a durable power of attorney is a document that outlines your wishes.
Typically, the term “power of attorney” applies to both medical and financial decisions. In Oregon, these are two separate documents that an estate planning attorney in Eugene can help you with.
A POA can:
Appoint someone to act on your behalf, such as paying bills and managing investments (financial power of attorney)
Direct your medical care (medical power of attorney/healthcare surrogate)
