LOACC: Learn how to be your adult child's health advocate
Children have the security of parents participating in their health care needs and decisions. Parents handle the tough choices, such as whether to treat appendicitis with medication or surgery. Even as children grow and have more say in their health care they know that their parents have their backs and would come to their rescue as an advocate if we end up unconscious in the hospital. Parents may have a strong relationship of trust with their child but without legal documents the hospital can deny parents any decision power in concerns for the care of an incapacitated adult child.
