Plan Your Future with an Advance Directive
An advance directive, also sometimes called a living will, is a written statement which lays out your wishes regarding medical treatment in the event you are unable to communicate with a doctor yourself.
We believe everyone deserves the right to oversee their own decisions about healthcare. Let us assist you through this process so you can continue to live your life your life to the fullest, worry-free.
Why Should I Create an Advance Directive?
In a perfect world, an advance directive would be unnecessary. But because life tends to throw the unexpected our way, we recommend securing the proper documentation while in good health, just in case.
An advance directive states, in your own words, what kind of medical treatment you prefer. It also eases the burden for your family and friends, protecting them from using guesswork to choose for you.
Everyone has their own beliefs and values, so it’s vital to take charge of your health while in the right mind to do so.
What Happens If I Don’t Make an Advance Directive?
Without an advance directive, you are still entitled to medical care. However, you may not receive the kind of care and treatment you would prefer.
Without an advance directive in place, a physician may defer to others regarding how to go about treatment, including:
- Your spouse
- Your relatives
- Close friends
- The local clergy
- A court appointed guardian
An experienced advance directive attorney in Huntsville can help you craft a comprehensive document. If you’d prefer decisions regarding care to be in your own hands, Attorney Robertson is here to help.
