Advance Directive/Living Will
Why is it important to complete Advance Directives?
Serious illness or injury can strike at any time, at any age, so it is important for anyone over the age of eighteen to think about filling out these documents. A Living will and/or Health Care Power of Attorney will help to ensure your wishes for life sustaining treatment are followed regardless of your age.
What is the Living Will?
Should you ever become unable to verbally communicate your wishes the Living Will lets you identify in advance, and in writing, your instruction regarding care if you are terminally ill or permanently unconscious.
What is the Power of Attorney for Health Care?
A Health Care Power of Attorney is a document that allows you to name a person who will act on your behalf to make healthcare choices for you if you are not able to make choices for yourself.
Why is it important to complete both documents?
The Health Care Power of Attorney document identifies the person you trust to make any health care decisions for you should you be unable to make them for yourself, and the Living Will document makes your end of life/life sustaining care wishes known. Although both documents are important, your wishes in the Living Will should always be honored regardless of your Power of Attorney’s instruction. It is your choice to complete one or both, but often people do choose to complete these documents at the same time.
