Do I need to appoint the same person as my agent in my health care proxy and power of attorney?

Question: Do I need to appoint the same person as my agent in my health care proxy and power of attorney?

Answer: You do not need to appoint the same person as the agent in tour healthcare proxy which in Ohio is the Ohio healthcare power of attorney and your durable power of attorney. A lot of times I recommend to clients to take into consideration that the person that has the durable power of attorney is making financial decisions and that person should be financially oriented to handle your finances. The person that handles your medical decisions you need to take into consideration that it needs to be a person that is capable of making good healthcare decisions for you in the event of your disability and it may be a person that needs to make hard decisions and you have to be careful in how you select that person.
