Northern Kentucky Health Care Directives And Living Wills
Advance Health Care Directive /Living Wills
A health care directive, also known as a living will, is a document that clearly states your desires for medical treatment in the event that you are unable to communicate these wishes. A health care directive can also designate a health care proxy – the person you want to be responsible for making end-of-life medical care decisions for you. If something happens during surgery, if you fall into a coma, if you develop Alzheimer’s disease, or if you can’t make these important decisions for any other reason, your health care proxy will be your voice when you do not have one.
By creating an advance health care directive, you can avoid the long, bitter arguments that many families experience when forced to make a difficult decision about medical treatment or to end a loved one’s life. This document will ensure that your desires are heard and followed, even if you are unable to make them clear in your time of tragedy.
