The grandparent’s medical consent form is a document that allows someone else to be able to make medical decisions for the elderly person. This form is not meant for permanent situations as a Medical Power of Attorney should be created if the caregiver will be in charge of making decisions for a long period of time.
Signature – The form should be signed in the presence of at least one (1) witness that is not family.
Child Consent – Use if a parent or guardian would like the grandparent to have control of making medical decisions for a minor-child in the family.
