Advance Directives

What is an Advance Directive?

An advance directive is a set of legal documents that outline your wishes for healthcare if you are unable to make decisions for yourself. Key documents include durable power of attorney for healthcare and a living will. 

Advance Directive Forms

When completing advance directive forms, Memorial recommends connecting with your physician about Advance Care Planning. Our Advance Care Planning booklet includes information about advance care planning, a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, a Living Will and a Physician Order for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) form.
