Description

Given the aging of our general population and the tremendous gains in the medical field, the issues of guardianship and advance directives are more and more prevalent. In this 2018 edition, the practitioner is provided with many more options for advising clients facing such issues. The practitioner has a duty to advise clients regarding the availability of advance directives so that end-of-life decisions may be considered prior to a time of crisis. This handbook contains a discussion of guardianship, for both the person and the estate, as well as an outline of the advance directives recognized in Illinois. The forms in the text, including the Statutory Short Form Power of Attorney for Health Care and the Statutory Short Form Power of Attorney for Property, are editable, saving you drafting time. Helpful and instructive, this handbook focuses on what practitioners must do to serve the needs of persons who are no longer able to make decisions for themselves and have not made advanced plans for this eventuality.
