Your durable power of attorney plays a very important role near the end of your life. Once you determine your candidate, they will have the ability to make critical health care decisions when you become physically or mentally incapacitated. If you have any preferences for how long you want to be on life support, they will make the call for you.
As with other elements of estate planning in Texas, you could also change your mind and find your original choice to be unworthy for the role.

Regardless of the reasoning, you should familiarize yourself with how to revoke their title should you decide to change your representative.
