Advance Directives

What kind of medical care would you want if you were too ill to make your own medical decisions? Advanced directives also known as living wills are a type of legal document that defines your decisions about end-of-life medical care ahead of time.

This relatively simple document can prevent strife and confusion within your family and with your medical care provider when the need for a difficult end of life decision becomes necessary.

This document tells your family and your medical care providers whether you want any treatment in a wide range of specific circumstances, and if so, what type of treatment you would want to receive if you were dying or permanently unconscious. I strongly encourage everyone to do research and put serious thought into end-of-life issues.
