Advance Directives are legal documents that allow you to document and communicate your decisions about end-of-life for your family/friends and healthcare providers.

  1. Medical Power of Attorney Form gives the person you name as your decision-maker the authority to make health care decisions for you in accordance with your wishes.
  2. Directive to Physicians and Family/Surrogates Form helps you communicate your wishes about medical treatment when you are unable to make your wishes known due to illness/injury.  This is also called a Living Will.
