Advance Directive Form

An advance directive is a written document that allows you to put in writing what is most important to you regarding end-of-life care. An advance directive allows you to put in writing specifically what type of medical care you want and whom you want to facilitate your wishes.

If you decide to complete an advance directive, please print out the form, complete and submit to your Henry Ford physician. Your physician can also answer any additional questions you may have regarding this process.

Remember, an Advance Directive is only used by your Patient Advocate and the health care team when you are no longer able to speak for yourself. Until that time comes, you will make your own health care choices.
