National Healthcare Decisions Day

On Wednesday, April 11th, Melendy Moritz PLLC attorneys, Daphne Moritz and Meg Himmelsteib will be at the Quechee and Woodstock public libraries between 4 and 6 PM to talk to you about Advance Directives.

 

Health Care Directives

An Advance Directive for Healthcare is a document with your instructions used to guide your agent in making healthcare decisions for you. It is your chance to direct your wishes for healthcare treatment by using a legal document that must be honored by your state. You are able to designate a health care agent to make decisions on your behalf when you are no longer able to do so.

Your healthcare agent must be over eighteen years old, and should be someone you trust to be able to advocate for you and carry out your wishes.

Your directive may encompass your values and goals. It also provides with an opportunity to specifically discuss your end of life wishes and to address situations which may be temporary and not necessarily life threatening. In this document you can specify whether you will donate organs and tissues, and document your funeral arrangements and disposition of your body.

To learn more about Advance Directives come to either the Quechee or Woodstock public library on Wednesday, April 11, between 4 and 6 PM or contact Melendy Moritz PLLC at 802-457-9492 or daphne@melendymoritz.com.
