Advanced Directives

Advance directives are legal documents that allow you to spell out your decisions about end-of-life care ahead of time. They give you a way to tell your wishes to family, friends, and health care professionals and to avoid confusion later.

An advance directive is a set of instructions someone prepares in advance of ill health that determines his healthcare wishes. For example, a living will is one type of advance directive that becomes effective when a person is terminally ill.

Types of Advanced Directives:

  1. The living will
  2. Durable power of attorney for health care/Medical power of attorney
  3. POLST (Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment)
  4. Do not resuscitate (DNR) orders
  5. Organ and tissue donation

What Happens If I Don’t Make an Advance Directive?

You will receive medical care regardless of whether or not you have an advance directive. However, there may be a greater chance you will receive the types of care and treatments you want if you have an advance directive.

The Five Wishes:

Wish 1: The Person I Want to Make Care Decisions for Me When I Can’t.
Wish 2: The Kind of Medical Treatment I Want or Don’t Want.
Wish 3: How Comfortable I Want to Be.
Wish 4: How I Want People to Treat Me.
Wish 5: What I Want My Loved Ones to Know.

"I work in the front office at Andi's Angels. I have never met a boss/business owner who is so involved in the day to day as Andi. Andi truly cares for each and every one of her clients and caregivers. She goes above and beyond each and every day for everyone."

Marsha McCracken

"We were incredibly blessed to have found Andi's Angels when we searched for a home healthcare aide for our elderly yet fiercely independent mother. We live in another state, so are unable to visit her as frequently as we would like. Andi contacts me personally to keep us apprised of any challenges or changes in mom's living situation. "
