Healthcare Advance Directives

Healthcare Advance Directives

When a person becomes unable to make decisions due to physical or mental change, such as being in a coma, they are considered incapacitated. To ensure that an incapacitated person’s decisions about health care will be respected, the Michigan has enacted legislation pertaining to health care advanced directives.

An advanced directive is a written or oral statement about how you want medical decisions made should you be able to make them yourself and/or it can express your wish to make an anatomical donation after death. Some persons make advance directives when they are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, while others put their wishes into writing while they are healthy, often as part of their estate planning. Types of advance directives include: 1) A Living will, 2) A health care surrogate designation, and 3) An anatomical donation.
