Speaking on Advance Directives

Advance directives are documents known as a living will (different than a last will and testament) and a healthcare proxy. Together, they make up "advance directives" in which you:

  • Clearly state your preferences for the health care you wish to receive, or not receive.
  • Give someone of your choosing the authority to make decisions on your behalf if you are unable to communicate your preferences on your own when decisions must be made.
