Advanced Directive

Creating a plan for unexpected situations

Advance directives are legal documents that allow you to spell out your decisions about your health care, now and at the end of your life, ahead of time in the event you are unable to communicate them. Having the ability to express your wants and needs through these documents can be helpful to your family and medical staff, but can also give you the opportunity to have power over your most personal wishes.

 

We know it may be difficult to discuss these serious issues. Below you will find a few very helpful documents that can help you start having these conversations or create a legal document expressing your plans and desires for your care.
