Advance Care Planning
Advance Health Care Directive
Keeping your health care choices in your hands.
Have you thought about how you want to be cared for when you can't take care of yourself? Or who to entrust with your important health care decisions?
By establishing an advance directive, you can rest assured that you'll receive care on your terms because all the decisions made will be your own. Take the time now to plan for your health care future.
What is an advance directive?
An advance directive is a legal document that allows you to make your health care preferences known in the event you can't make them for yourself. You can specify the type of medical treatment you want to receive, who can make health care decisions for you and express your end-of-life wishes. Advance directives also include a health care power of attorney and a living will. Be sure to share a completed copy of your directive with your primary care doctor.
