Health Care Directive

Declaring your personal wishes for medical treatment is important, but it isn’t something we like to think about on regular basis. What would happen if you were in a bad car accident, or all of the sudden became very sick? These situations may be few and far between, but these are real situations that we deal with on a daily basis. Creating a health care directive is very important. It allows for you to make your own choices now so that if you are unable to do so your family will know what you would have wanted.

Declaring your wishes may seem difficult because there are so many different situations that could occur. We have helped thousands of people set up their own health care directives, and declare their wishes to their families. If you have questions, or need help creating your own please give us a call, or set up a free consultation using the link below.

Advance health care directive or living will

A living will is a document which tells medical providers whether or not you wish to be kept on life support when you have little or no hope for recovery.  It also clearly defines your wishes for medical care. In Utah, it is called a “Utah Advance Health Care Directive” and is combined with a healthcare power of attorney.
