Advance Directives

Advance Directives

An advance directive is a way to communicate your wishes about the use of life-sustaining treatment. It can be used to authorize or refuse certain treatments and to designate another person to make medical decisions for you.  Advance directives generally include a Living Will and Health Care Power of Attorney. 

Advance directives may be revoked at any time. Because of the serious nature of advance directives, the matter should be discussed thoroughly with your family and physician while you are healthy. You may cancel or change an advance directive at any time in accordance with state law. Changes should be made in writing and should be signed and dated.

Your healthcare decision-maker needs to know your:

  • Preferred and undesired types of medical treatment.
  • Acceptable extent of medical treatment and invasive procedures.
  • Family dynamics and who to consult in making decisions.
  • Health care and death-related fears and concerns.
  • Religious or spiritual considerations.
  • End-of-life planning and, if necessary, desire to die at home versus the hospital.
  • Desired quality-of-life level.
  • Thoughts on the experiences of others who have gone through similar situations.
