The Best Time To Make A South Carolina Living Will and Healthcare Power of Attorney

The best time to make a South Carolina Living Will and Healthcare Power of Attorney is before you need it. This will be before you are in a hospital or nursing home and when you have a clear head and enough time to make an informed decision. If you are already in a hospital or nursing home you might be under stress or pressure to make a decision. If you are already admitted in a hospital or nursing home then you may still make a South Carolina Healthcare Power of Attorney without additional steps, but to complete a South Carolina Living Will you will need someone from the state Ombudsman's office present. This additional step may take more time and interfere with your wishes.
