The Right Decisions For You

When you think about your future medical care, there is no “right” or “wrong” choice. You have to do what is right for you. And, if you change your mind, all you have to do is complete a new advance directive. An advance directive helps people accurately remember your plan, makes it easier to communicate to health providers who do not know, and provides the possibility for it to be a legal document.

When completing an advance directive, you will document your healthcare choices in two forms:

1. Medical Power of Attorney – lets you appoint someone, a healthcare agent, to carry out your healthcare choices if you are incapable

2. Directive to Physicians and Family or Surrogates – lets you provide a set of instructions about the care you would like at the end of your life
