How can my wishes for end of life medical care be known and considered?
ADVANCE CARE DIRECTIVE
An Advance Care Directive, otherwise known as a ‘Living Will’, is a legal document which provides clear directions as to your wishes about medical treatment should you no longer have capacity to make the decision yourself. This could occur because you have a sudden accident or serious mental health episode, dementia, a serious stroke, or you are unconscious or in a coma.
You will get peace of mind knowing that those caring for you will be aware of what you want when you are unable to make your own decisions or communicate your wishes and values.
