Speaker – Pamela  L. Enck – Attorney-at-Law – Your End of Life Plan
  • Pam and her husband Philip have lived in USC for 17 years. They have 5 children. Philip presented to the Club on July 26th.
  • Pam received her undergraduate degree from Penn State and law degree from WVU. Also received a Masters in Public Administration.
  • Currently in private practice focusing on real estate, adoptions and estate planning. Has worked on adoption cases with Laura Maines.
  • End of Life planning consists primarily of: (1) a Final Will & Testament, (2) a Power of Attorney and (3) a Medical Power of Attorney & Living Will.
  • Powers of Attorney can be either limited (i.e. by scope and/or time period) or durable (broad scope and unlimited by time).
  • Individuals granted a Power of Attorney could be a family member or could be an attorney or a court-appointed guardian or a protector (i.e. a conservator).
  • A Medical Power of Attorney & Living Will is especially important since it will directly effect how an individual chooses to be treated in the final stage of life. It could deal with three primary areas important to most individuals: personal, emotional and spiritual.
  • A guide has been developed by Jim Towey, Founder of Aging with Dignity and Mother Teresa’s legal advisor, called Five Wishes. The website states that it currently meets legal requirements in 42 states and the District of Columbia. The five wishes are:
  • Wish 1: The Person I Want to Make Health Care Decisions for Me When I Can’t Make Them for Myself
  • Wish 2: My Wish for the Kind of Medical Treatment I Want or Don’t Want
  • Wish 3: My Wish for How Comfortable I Want to Be
  • Wish 4: My Wish for How I Want People to Treat Me
  • Wish 5: My Wish for What I Want My Loved Ones to Know
