Advanced Directive Information
With the issue of Advanced Directives being a big part of the national news of late, more and more people are taking their first serious look at this important topic. Advanced Directives are important because they help ensure that your wishes will be carried out should you be incapacitated and unable to speak for yourself.
Once you have completed an Advanced Directive, you should discuss your wishes with your family members and healthcare providers.
It is also important to know that the requirements for Advanced Directives vary widely from state to state. If your state is not listed below, it is recommended that you contact your state's Public Health Department, Hospital Association, Local Hospital or Bar Association.
