What is an ‘Advanced Care Directive’?

An ‘Advanced Care Directive’ is a legal document that acts as a living will. It can be made by a person who wishes to leave instructions regarding their health for a future time when they are unable to make those decisions for themselves. It can incorporate all the values and wishes that the person would like to include in relation to health treatments and options should they be unable to speak for themselves in the future. Book in to see your doctor so these plans can be put in place well before the need arises.
