The basics of an advance directive

If an individual becomes unresponsive, it may not be possible for doctors or others to know what type of care to provide. With an advance directive, however, Virginia residents can put those wishes into writing. Furthermore, the advance directive will name another party who will carry out those instructions. The terms of the document may become effective when a doctor declares a patient to be unable to make decisions on his or her own.

The role of the guardian

If someone in Virginia is disabled or incapacitated, he or she may be considered a ward and given a guardian. In the event that a person already provided another individual with a durable power of attorney, that individual will act in accordance with the document's terms. However, if no guardian was named ahead of time, a judge will need to appoint someone to that role. A guardian will make sure that bills are paid or that investments are managed.
