Emergency and Healthcare Planning
At Garbero Law, we understand the importance of emergency and healthcare planning procedures for organizations and government agencies. We also recognize that sometimes those procedures fall short and there is still a need for individuals, especially those with disabilities, to create their own plans for care and well-being in case of an emergency.
One important aspect of individual emergency planning is healthcare planning. This involves making sure that you have the necessary medical and personal care that you need in the event of an emergency. This may include identifying a healthcare proxy, making sure that you have access to necessary medications and medical equipment, and ensuring that your healthcare providers have a complete understanding of your medical history and needs.
Another important aspect of individual emergency planning is estate planning. This involves making sure that your affairs are in order and that your assets are protected in the event of your death or incapacity. This may include creating a will or trust, identifying a power of attorney, and making sure that your loved ones are aware of your wishes and your plans for your assets and estate.
For disabled individuals, individual emergency healthcare and estate planning can be especially important. By taking the time to plan ahead and make sure that you have the necessary care and support in place, you can help ensure that you are able to access the resources and services that you need during times of crisis.
Some important considerations for individual emergency healthcare and estate planning for disabled individuals may include:
- Identifying a healthcare proxy or power of attorney who can make medical decisions on your behalf in the event that you are unable to do so
- Ensuring that you have access to necessary medications and medical equipment
- Identifying a trusted individual who can assist with personal care and support
- Making sure that your loved ones are aware of your wishes and your plans for your assets and estate
By taking the time to plan ahead and make sure that you have the necessary care and support in place, you can help ensure that you are able to navigate emergencies and crises with confidence and peace of mind.
