The attorneys and staff members of Elder Law Associates PA, headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., would like to thank all of the frontline healthcare workers who are giving it their all right now in the midst of the coronavirus. Their dedication, commitment to serve, and tireless devotion to caring for all of their patients is appreciated and valued by all. To thank them for everything that they are doing to keep their patients and the community safe and well during the COVID-19 pandemic, the firm is offering healthcare workers in South Florida free legal documents to communicate their preferences in the event of a personal health catastrophe.
The Elder Law Associates PA team will assist these heroic healthcare workers in Florida by drafting Living Will and Designation of Health Care Surrogate documents free of charge during this worldwide health crisis. These two essential advance directives help people legally express their preferences regarding their medical wishes and end-of-life care. A Living Will details a person’s desires regarding medical treatment if he or she is unable to express informed consent. A Designation of Health Care Surrogate is a document that authorizes a person to make medical decisions for another person if that person is unable to make them on his or her own. These two documents together help to provide clarity on who can make healthcare decisions for an incapacitated person and what those decisions should be.
Please watch this short, informative video for more information, and be sure to forward this information to family members, colleagues, friends and coworkers working on the front lines in Florida. According to partners Ellen S. Morris, Esq., and Howard S. Krooks, Esq., CELA, CAP, "Elder Law Associates PA is here for you now or whenever you need us. The coronavirus has hit our community hard, but we know that our healthcare workers won’t give up on us, so we will never give up on them. They truly are our heroes and we thank them!"
