Power of Attorney and Provision Mandate, Living Will
In the last decades, the average life expectancy in our population has continuously risen. This development, however, increasingly results in geriatric diseases which impair the ability of the aged to make their own decisions. There is thus the danger of becoming unable to adequately attend to one’s own interests and issues.
In such a case, another person of your choosing should be allowed to decide and act for you. If, however, you did not make any provisions, then an official guardian is appointed by the State to regulate your affairs. All these are good reasons why Power of Attorney and Provision Mandates as well as Living Wills are becoming increasingly urgent issues within the larger population. Within this field, however, it is crucial to take current changes into account effected by legislature - especially for living wills.
For this reason Power of Attorney, Provision Mandate and Living Wills as well as Wills ought to be reviewed within certain time intervals as well as updated and harmonized according to the needs of the current situation.
