Complete Your Advance Directive!

This Saturday, April 16, is National Healthcare Decisions Day.

Do you have an advance directive? This is a document which outlines your preferences for the type of medical care you would like to receive, especially if you were to experience a health crisis.

I believe every adult should have one. I have seen too many cases of people's wishes not being honored, either because they did not have the documents, they were not completed properly, or no one could find them.

In my home state of North Carolina, several documents exist, and they can be voluntarily registered for easy access. For more details, please visit this website.
