Creating a POLST is an important step toward getting the care and medical treatment you wants at a time when you may no longer be able to communicate those wishes to your family or medical staff. As estate planners we know just how important it is to communicate these preferences for health care; in fact, creating an estate plan with our office includes drafting a document called an advance directive, in which you specify which medical treatments or interventions you would or would not like, and more importantly, it is the document in which you nominate a health care agent to serve as your proxy if and when you are unable to speak for yourself.
