Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare: A instrument in writing whereby one person, as principal, appoints another as his or her agent and confers authority to perform certain specified acts or kinds of acts on behalf of the principal as it relates to health care decisions. Said powers of the agent only spring into existence when the principal becomes unable to make medical decisions for him or herself.
