If something happened to you, would your family, friends and medical team know your wishes? We always want to think we would be able to make our own medical decisions but what if we could not? This is a hard conversation to have with yourself and family, but it is vital.
Advance Directives help your family know what your wishes are, and many times relieve the stress of making medical decisions for you. The directives consist of a Living Will Declaration, Life-Prolonged Procedure Declaration, Power of Attorney and Appointment of Healthcare Representative, Do Not Resuscitate and Psychiatric Advance Directives.
