What is an Advanced Directive?

An advance directive is a form that tells your family, friends, and healthcare providers what medical care you want, in case you’re too sick or injured to speak for yourself.

To ensure the legality and use of the form:

  • Have two witnesses
  • Provide a copy to your healthcare provider or hospital

Note: You may revoke or change your advance directive at any time.

Make Sure to Express Your Wishes

Share your preferences and choices with:
