Why should I have an Advance Directive?
By creating an advance directive, you are making your preferences known regarding your medical care prior to the event of a serious illness or injury. This will spare your loved ones the stress of making decisions about your care. Be prepared with MedicAlert Advance Directive Management Services.
What is an Advanced Directive?
An advance directive is a document outlining the type of care you wish to receive in the event you should become unable to make medical decisions.
Such directives will describe what kind of care you want if you have an illness that you are unlikely to recover from, or if you are permanently unconscious. Advance directives instruct your physician as to what type of care and treatment you wish to receive if you are unable to communicate your desires.
Advance directives take many forms in different states, where specific laws apply. Become aware of the laws related to advance directives in your state.
Maintain Control of Your Care
Good communication is imperative to maintaining control of your own care. In order for healthcare providers and loved ones to honor your end-of-life wishes, they have to know your desires before the event of a serious illness or injury.
With MedicAlert Advance Directive Management Service, your written advance directives are safely and confidentially stored, communicated and made available when and where they are needed. Through this service, MedicAlert Foundation can provide your stored advance directives to designated contacts – including family members, your healthcare proxy or agent, or your doctors.
