The Connecticut medical power of attorney form, or Health Care Instructions and Advance Directive, is a legal document that provides an individual with the ability to select their healthcare representative while also providing directions in advance with regard to their end-of-life treatment. The representative will be required to ensure that all procedures are carried out in accordance with the patient’s wishes. More often than not, the agent will be a close family member or friend as they will be able to accurately anticipate the patient’s needs should they become incapacitated.
