Healthcare Directives

The Southern Nevada Senior Law Program strongly supports a senior’s right to age with dignity. Many of the seniors who contact us have recently been diagnosed with major illnesses. In the event of a catastrophic or major medical crisis, having a Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare Decisions and Directive to Physician is invaluable. These documents are best prepared in advance of such a crisis so family, friends, and medical personnel are aware of our clients’ medical desires when they cannot speak for themselves. Southern Nevada Senior Law Program attorneys explain the legal provisions of these documents and help clients clarify their desires. Once clients have completed these documents, they receive copies to distribute and generally have peace of mind. We also assist clients in registering these documents with the Nevada Secretary of State’s Living Will Lockbox. Our healthcare packets consist of the following:

  • Directive to Physician
  • Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare Decisions
  • Living Will Lockbox Registration Agreement

The Southern Nevada Senior Law Program gave us excellent, organized, and timely service. We have attempted to prepare our forms several times but kept losing them. With your help we now have a Power of Attorney for Health Care registered in Carson City and copies in our kids’ hands prepared and notarized.79 and 77 year-old husband and wife
Some so-called professionals are more interested in getting a new luxury car than taking care of their clients’ welfare. I have resided in Las Vegas since 1958 and feel that the Southern Nevada Senior Law Program is one place seniors can depend on. Their attorneys take care of our legal needs or guide us with the right information. Thank you for all of your help, and with gratitude I say great job.77 year-old widower
