Do you have an advance care plan in place?
We plan years ahead for retirement. We plan months ahead for vacations. We plan for college educations. But we do not plan well for our own health care, most often leaving decisions up to weary family members.
Taking more personal responsibility for your own health care requires shifting from a reactive mind-set to a proactive approach, with the idea of creating a flexible health care road map for handling any changes in your health. An advanced health care plan goes beyond a single health care directive, such as a “do not resuscitate” order (DNR), and moves into a more comprehensive plan of action that can grow and change along with your condition.
National Healthcare Decisions Day is April 16. Register to attend an upcoming event about health care planning.
Advance Health Care Directive
You have the right to make decisions about your medical treatment. An Advance Health Care Directive form can help you give instructions about your medical treatment, name someone else to make health care decisions for you, express your wishes about organ donation and designate a primary care physician.
Learn more by viewing the links below. To use the Advance Directive Form, download the PDF, fill it out on-screen, print it, sign and initial it and get the appropriate signatures.
