What Is an Advanced Medical Directive?

Fortunately, there is a way to ensure that your wishes are carried out if you become unable to make medical decisions on your own. It is known as an advanced medical directive. In Virginia, this legal tool is comprised of two documents. The first, called a durable power of attorney for health care, names an individual to make medical decisions for you, if you are unable to do so on your own. The second document, called a living will, defines specific types of treatment you wish to receive in certain situations.

An advanced medical directive can be extremely beneficial if you:

  • Become suddenly ill
  • Are involved in a serious accident and become incapacitated
  • Lose the ability to make medical decisions for yourself as you age
  • “Extremely informative and professional.” - P.R. & S.R.
  • “He took the time to explain everything” - M.H.
  • “We have been very, very pleased with the work they have done.” - T.L.
