Q. All advice articles for seniors that I have read advise us to have a will, durable power of attorney, physician’s directive, and a medical power of attorney. My attorney’s office tells me that I have a “Living Will Advance Health Care Directive” which designates a health care advocate for me and therefore I do not need the Medical Power of Attorney. Is that correct?
A. Texas has two statutory forms, one called a “Directive to Physicians” and the other called a “Medical Power of Attorney.” Most lawyers in Texas routinely prepare both of these forms for their clients.
