An advanced healthcare directive combines a living will and a medical power of attorney. This document allows you to provide healthcare instructions in the event that you become incapacitated, like in a living will. It also allows you to appoint someone you trust to make healthcare decisions on your behalf, based on the wishes you express in the advanced healthcare directive.
For example, you can specify what types of treatment you want to receive if a doctor determines you are in a persistent vegetative state or terminally ill. You can also provide specific instructions that align with your religious beliefs, so you can be sure that your beliefs are upheld even when you are unable to make decisions. Parkway can help you navigate the different types of treatment and can help you provide specific healthcare instructions.
