Is a Power of Attorney for Health Care different than a Durable Power of Attorney?


A power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to name another person to act on your behalf. In Delaware, a Power of Attorney for Health Care is different than a Durable Power of Attorney. A Power of Attorney for Health Care relates to health care decisions, while a Durable Power of Attorney relates to financial matters.
