What is an Advance Directive?

It is a written or oral statement about how you want medical decisions made should you be unable to make them yourself and/or it can express your wish to make an anatomical donation after death. Some people make advance directives when they are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Others put their wishes into writing while they are healthy, often as part of their estate planning. To obtain forms to designate a Power of Attorney or Healthcare Surrogate, or to create a Living Will, please access the PDF documents below.
