Do you have a living will/advanced medical directive? If something happens to you, who should make decisions for you about medical care? Do those people know what your wishes are? How do they know?

We have all seen recent news stories that have brought this concept of advanced directives to the forefront of our minds. For my part, I don't have a directive in place yet, but I will before the month is over with.

Regardless of your wishes or desires, an advanced directive a good thing to do - not just for you, but also for the those who might have to act in your best interest.

For people living in the United States, PDF forms for Advanced Directives can be downloaded for free at The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. Go here to get one for your state. Complete instructions covering how to fill it out and what to do with it are included.
