Types of Advance Directives
For people who are no longer able to reliably make decisions on their own, an advance directive can be used to keep the wrong people from intervening and influencing them against their will.
You can file an advance directive for:
- Directive to Physicians: If a time comes that you are incapacitated and may have to make difficult decisions about how to proceed, this document will help your family know what to instruct physicians to do on your behalf.
- Medical power of attorney: If you are not comfortable creating a Directive to Physicians, you can Authorize a trusted person to make medical decisions on your behalf. Decisions can include not only medical treatment but other arrangements in accordance with your religious or moral beliefs. A power of attorney can be overridden if you are able to state otherwise.
- Out of Hospital Do not resuscitate: There are situations where prolonging one’s life is not the ideal option. This declaration provides medical professionals with the information they need to know how to treat you in cases of emergency. However, this type of document requires the signature of a physician in order to go into effect.
- Durable power of attorney: While this power of attorney does not apply to medical decisions, this declaration allows you to select someone you trust with decision-making power about your property.
