Advanced Directives

What kind of medical care would you want if you were too ill or hurt to express your wishes? Advance directives are legal documents that allow you to convey your decisions about end-of-life care ahead of time. They provide a way for you to communicate your wishes to family, friends and healthcare professionals and avoid confusion later on. We encourage you to talk with your family, your friends and healthcare provider. Know your options, decide what’s right for you, and then put it in writing.
