In the end, options for your personal care and treatments should be in your hands. The AHD and DNR close the gap between doctors, you and your loved ones. Now that you have an understanding of your options for your End of Life healthcare, we suggest you get started by printing out the Advanced Healthcare Directive checklist on the following pages.
If you decide to store the Advanced Healthcare Directive or DNR yourself, let your health power of attorney know where it is, or better yet, give him a copy. Make copies and familiarize your loved ones with your End of Life wishes. Copies should be accepted like the originals.
