A medical directive is a document where you appoint someone to make your medical decisions in the event that two doctors have said you’re no longer able to make your own decisions. In those documents you’re also able to set forth what you want those decisions to be.
For example, do you want life support or not? Who do you want to receive your remains? Do you want an autopsy? Do you want to donate organs? When you’re able to set these forth in a document, it makes it easier for your loved ones to make those decisions in the event that it becomes necessary.
If you have any questions about making a medical directive, please give us a call at Holstrom, Block & Parke and we’ll be happy to assist you.
