Advance Directives and Living Wills

Ascension provides assistance with advance directives and living wills so you can share your future healthcare decisions with family and loved ones.

About Advance Directives and Living Wills

Making sure that your future medical care meets your wishes is important. That’s where advance directives — written instructions about your healthcare wishes — can help. If you become too sick to make choices for yourself, these documents give your doctors and caregivers medical guidance. Advance directives also reduce the stress for your family of making difficult medical decisions about your care.

At Ascension, we’re dedicated to working with you to honor your care and treatment choices. We’ve teamed with healthcare experts to provide advance directives documents, including Power of Attorney for Healthcare, Living Wills and Do-Not-Resuscitate (DNR) Orders for your physicians.

We also offer guidance to help you understand your future healthcare options, so you and your family can enjoy peace of mind about your healthcare.
