Making Your Own Decisions

The following forms are vital for documenting your healthcare and end of life decisions:

An advance healthcare directive, also known as living will, personal directive, advance directive, or advance decision, is a legal document in which a person specifies what actions should be taken for their health if they are no longer able to make decisions for themselves because of illness or incapacity.

A life-prolonging declaration mandates the implementation of all life-prolonging procedures necessary to extend life. You should use the declaration if you want extraordinary or heroic measures used to prolong your life.

You may appoint a healthcare representative to make medical decisions in the event you become incapacitated. You may specify instructions to be followed by your healthcare representative, who must act in good faith and in your best interest, consistent with the terms of the appointment.
