When a person is unable to make decisions or wishes to delegate decisions about healthcare or finances, a powers of attorney would be appropriate. A powers of attorney grants to another person the rights or abilities that the grantor (the one who signs the decision making power to another) would have in the situation described in the power of attorney. Powers of attorney can be very broad and general or very specific. A powers of attorney could be given specifically to sell a certain stock when it reaches a predetermined price, or it could be given to handle all investments for an individual. A powers of attorney for healthcare could be given specifically to allow an individual to make key decisions for the grantor during an operation, or it could be given to allow that individual to approve or disapprove all procedures that the medical providers recommend.
