Most people want to ensure that their wishes are properly carried out in the event of a physical or mental inability. The mandate given in anticipation of inability (or the power of attorney for property or for personal care) has been specifically designed to meet this need.
The mandate given in anticipation of inability is a legal document through which you authorize a third person to make decisions in your place if you are physically or mentally incapable of doing so. The mandate may be established only when you are capable, and you may modify it or appoint another person as long as you are capable of doing so.
