Healthcare Directives and Powers of Attorney

The Southern Nevada Senior Law Program strongly supports a senior’s right to age with dignity. Many of the seniors who contact us have recently been diagnosed with major illnesses. In the event of a catastrophic or major medical crisis, having a Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare Decisions, Directive to Physician, and Statutory Power of Attorney are invaluable. These documents are best prepared in advance of such a crisis so family, friends, and medical personnel are aware of our clients’ desires when they cannot speak for themselves. Southern Nevada Senior Law Program attorneys explain the legal provisions of these documents and help clients clarify their desires. Once clients have completed these documents, they receive copies to distribute and generally have peace of mind. Our packets consist of the following:

  • Directive to Physician
  • Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare Decisions
  • Statutory Power of Attorney
  • Living Will Lockbox Registration Agreement
