The Agent you choose under Iowa’s Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care will begin making decisions for you if in the event of your disability. It is important that your choice be someone who not only will conduct your views and philosophies as to end of life medical options, but who can also articulate and defend them against others who may not agree with your point of view.
Most people choose a blood relative, a close friend or their spouse. You specifically cannot choose your physician, or anyone employed by him or her unless they are related to you. As with other power of attorney documents in Iowa, it is recommended to be notarized but must be at least signed with two (2) witnesses present.
