Every person has the right to make his or her own decisions about health care. An advance directive is a document that helps ensure the care you receive is in line with your values and wishes, even if you aren’t available to communicate them at the time.
Advance directives aren't just for older adults. Unexpected end-of-life situations can happen at any age, so it's important for ALL adults to have advance directives. Springfield Clinic encourages all patients age 18 and older to have an advance directive, regardless of their health.
