A will should include details about and provisions for:

Financial & Health Care Planning
Estate planning is not limited to your death. Many people take this opportunity to make plans for a time when they are unable to make decisions for themselves. A health care power of attorney is a person you designate to make healthcare decisions. You can also convey your preferences regarding life support and other health care measures in a living will or advance directive. A financial power of attorney names someone to act on your behalf in financial matters.
