Advance Directives


  • Advance directives are written legal documents that explain your medical wishes and allow you to appoint somebody to make medical decisions on your behalf if you are unconscious or unable to make your own decisions. When you have an advance directive, your family is not left wondering what you would want during a medical crisis.
