The Georgia power of attorney form is one part of the Advance Directive for Healthcare package, a document that provides residents with the ability to chart the direction of their healthcare. The power of attorney component enables the principal to select a health care agent, someone who will be able to make health care decisions when they can no longer do so themselves. The treatment preferences section, or living will, states under what circumstances the principal would or would not want certain medical procedures and treatments applied.
