What happens if you become too sick to make your own decisions regarding your medical care? Without an advance directives document (Power of Attorney for Health Care) your family and doctor must make decisions for you without knowing your wishes. Remember that creating a clear document of your wishes is the best gift you can give your loved ones.
Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare has collaborated with local health care providers to develop a clear, straightforward document which can be used to designate a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care which allows you to name a “patient advocate” to act for you and carry out your wishes for care in specific medical situations.
The approved advance directives document is now available and can be downloaded easily.
