What Parents Don't Anticipate
By not specifying whom they want to take the lead in helping make care decisions, there is a likelihood that other family members may disagree, delaying action and leaving health care providers in the unfortunate predicament of getting inconsistent direction.
When preparing for their parents’ golden years, families anticipate the eventuality when a mother or father loses his or her ability to make reasonable personal health decisions.
Being prepared for a medical emergency makes sense.
When caring for the elderly, doctors will need to engage families in health care decisions. Without advance medical directives or health care power of attorney, health care providers will reach out to multiple family members in sequence of relationship: a spouse, adult children, a sibling.
In a time when clarity and timeliness of health decision-making matters most, the situation can become complicated when multiple parties become involved.
