(755 ILCS 43/15)
Designation of attorney-in-fact.
A declaration may designate a
competent adult to act as attorney-in-fact to make decisions about mental
health treatment. An alternative attorney-in-fact may also be designated to
act as attorney-in-fact if the original designee is unable or unwilling to act
at any time. An attorney-in-fact who has accepted the appointment in writing
may make decisions about mental health treatment on behalf of the principal
only when the principal is incapable. The decisions must be consistent with
any desires the principal has expressed in the declaration.
