Advance Directives Put Your Wishes in Writing
If you’re incapacitated at the end of life – unable to speak or communicate with doctors or loved ones – how will they know your wishes for end-of-life care? Would they make the same decisions you would have made for your care? You can answer these questions by putting your preferences in writing now, using advance directives.
The Three Types of Advance Directives
You should consider drawing up all (or a combination) of the three main types of directives:
- Living will – instructions for your preferred level of treatment (for example, whether to have a feeding tube or other forms of life support.)
- Durable power of attorney for health care – designation of another person to make medical decisions for you if you can’t make them for yourself.
