What are Advanced Directives?
"Advanced Directives" are legal documents where you explain and plan your end-of-life wishes in the event that something happens and you cannot communicate. Advanced Directives consist of:
A living will;
A medical power of attorney
A living will describes what you want regarding medical care and a medical power of attorney is a person you've identified to be the point person to make healthcare decisions for you in case you cannot communicate.
If you have any questions about Advanced Directives, please speak with your provider and/or behavioral health therapist.
