Q.Can I have both a durable power of attorney for health care and a living will?

A.Yes, and most people should have both.

A durable power of attorney for health care enables your appointed individual to make health care deicisions on your behalf if you become temporarily unconscious or disabled and are incapable of communicating your desires.

A living will, on the other hand, sets forth your desires regarding life-saving treatments and care in the event you become terminally ill.
