The entire Elder Law Associates PA team would like to thank all of the frontline healthcare workers who are giving it their all right now in the midst of the coronavirus. Their dedication, commitment to serve, and tireless devotion to caring for all of their patients is appreciated and valued by all. To thank them for everything that they are doing to keep their patients and our community safe and well during the COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to offer healthcare workers free legal documents to communicate their preferences in the event of a personal health catastrophe.
We would be honored to assist them by drafting Living Will and Designation of Health Care Surrogate documents free of charge during this worldwide health crisis. These two essential advance directives help you legally express your preferences regarding your medical wishes and end-of-life care. A Living Will details a person’s desires regarding medical treatment if you are unable to express informed consent. A Designation of Health Care Surrogate is a document that authorizes a person of your choice to make medical decisions for you if you are unable to make them on your own. These two documents help to provide clarity on who you want to make healthcare decisions for you and what those decisions should be.
Elder Law Associates PA’s partner Howard S. Krooks, Esq., CELA, CAP was interviewed by WPTV’s Michelle Quesada on April 30 discussing these essential legal documents and why it’s critical, especially right now, to have these documents in place. You can read the story and watch the video here.
Contact us today for more information about drafting these important legal documents. Our office remains open during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and our attorneys and staff remain fully accessible via email, through our phone numbers, 1-800-ELDERLAW and (561) 750-3850, and through video conferencing. We can take care of all of the initial gathering of information electronically, and we have instituted new safe, social distancing procedures for all document signings, which will be held in our outdoor plaza at our main headquarters in Boca Raton (see the photos below).
Please watch this short, informative video above for more information, and be sure to forward this page to all of your family members colleagues, friends and coworkers working on the front lines in Florida to let them know that Elder Law Associates PA is here for you now or whenever you need us. The coronavirus has hit our community hard, but we know that our healthcare workers won’t give up on us, so we will never give up on them. They truly are our heroes and we thank them! Contact us today for more details.
Stay safe and well!
