Having an advance directive can be extremely beneficial, as it allows you to specify your wishes while easing the decision-making burden on your loved ones. Advance directives can provide clear guidance to health care providers, reduce the likelihood of a dispute with and among family members and ensure you avoid unwanted procedures. It is a very good idea to make sure your doctor(s) know your wishes and has the latest copy of your advance directive on file. Classes are currently being held in our clinics.
