Delray Beach, FL , September 11, 2019: Mindy Felinton, founder of Felinton Elder Law & Estate Planning Centers, has posted a new article on her law firm's website entitled "Every Adult Has The Right To Prepare For An Unexpected Medical Crisis," in which Ms. Felinton makes readers aware of Advance Directive for Health Care forms.
Felinton points out, "No one likes to think about the prospect of having to face a sudden, debilitating medical crisis." She continues adding, "The very term 'medical crisis' implies the unexpected nature of such events."
Felinton states, "I suggest to my clients that they think about the prospect of a medical crisis in the same way you think of having an emergency fund in case you lose your job and have to cover expenses for the next 6 months or more." She emphasizes, "It's a necessity."
According to Felinton, "Every capable adult over the age of 18 has the basic right to make choices about their health care in the event of a tragedy. That means having the right to choose or refuse medical treatment." She says, "You can establish your desires by filling out an Advance Directive for Health Care form. These forms can be found online. Once the form is signed and witnessed it is legal. The forms can be changed, just like a will can be."
