Long Term Care Planning

An advanced directive includes your specific instructions regarding the  type of care you want or do not want if you become ill with a condition that leaves you unable to speak for yourself.  Careful consideration of who to appoint as your health care advocate is extremely important and valuable when there comes a time when an Advanced Directive is necessary to guide the medical staff.
