More Daughters Make Health Decisions

Darrell C. Harriman linking to First Coast News –  brought attention to research that shows that daughters are making health care decisions for their parents nearly 60 percent of the time.

I haven’t done a formal review of what my client’s have chosen, but daughters are more frequently chosen as agents under a health care power of attorney. They are more often the direct caregivers for their parents. So, it comes as no surprise to me that daughters form the majority of decision makers in healthcare for parents.
