Advanced Healthcare Directive

Provide yourself the opportunity and dignity of drafting a healthcare directive to state your medical wishes in case you are in a position where you cannot.

What is it?

A legal document stating your medical wishes in case you are in a position where you cannot communicate them yourself. If you lose the ability to communicate for yourself because of injury, illness or any other medical condition, then your advanced healthcare directive comes into effect.

Why do you want it?

  • To detail which medical procedures you consent to in various scenarios.
  • Allows you to appoint a medical proxy to make decisions for you if you cannot. This person is normally your partner or a close family member.
  • Allows you to be specific about interventions, treatments, end of life choices, infection control, pain management and palliative care.

Do you need it?

Yes, illness can strike anyone at any time. Everyone should have an advanced healthcare directive if they want a say in how they would like to be treated in this situation or if they want a partner or family member to speak on their behalf. It is particularly valuable for the families of patients with advanced dementia, in a permanent vegetative state or suffering from a terminal illness.
