Healthcare Advance Directive
By filling out this document, you give directions about your future health care and who should make medical decisions for you if a situation arises where you may be unable to speak for yourself.
After completing an Advance Directive (also called a “living will”):
- Keep the original signed and dated document where you keep personal documents
- Tell a family member or friend where you have stored it
- Give a copy to your physician, decision-maker and substitute decision-maker
- Review this document occasionally, adding the date and your initials to show that your wishes are current
A pocket-sized advance directive is available free by calling The Muller Institute for Senior Health at 215-481-2571.
