Health Care Directive & Advance Care Planning

Who will speak for you if you can't speak for yourself? health care directives

A health care directive is a planning tool used to identify who you want to make health care decisions for you if you aren’t able to communicate. It puts your wishes regarding end-of-life care in writing. For more information, please ask your nurse for a packet or a brochure on Health Care Directives

Local organization, Light the Legacy, provides information about Health Care Directives, as well as forms you can download and complete.
