We are at your disposal for general advice or as agents in the advance directive. As a person capable of acting, you yourself determine how your life should be organized in the event of incapacity due to accident or illness. You have the option to make the following dispositions so that the decisions made during your lifetime correspond to your will:
With an advance directive, you appoint one or more trusted persons to act on your behalf in the event of incapacity. The advance directive is subject to the same formal requirements as a will (personal signature or public certification). The place of deposit of the advance directive can be registered with the civil registry office. The person of trust takes care of current contracts and legal matters, your assets and personal care such as the choice of a care place or support in everyday life.
You can designate a natural person (for example, a close person or an attorney) as well as a legal entity (for example, a trust office or a legal consultancy) or even several persons as a trusted third party.
Health care proxy
With the health care proxy, you give specific instructions about your medical treatment and designate one or more persons you trust to decide for you which therapies should be used if you are no longer able to decide on this yourself. There is no formal requirement. You can obtain sample health care proxies from various organizations on the Internet (e. g. FMH Patient Decree). It is advisable to consult with your medical doctor.
