PA Advance Health Care Directive

There is no better gift to give the people you care about than providing them clear directions regarding your medical care, should you become unable to speak for yourself. During times of good health, thinking about advanced directives can give you clarity and comfort in your decisions.

Pa Directive Small

Pennsylvania Advance Health Care Directive is an easy to read document that helps you to clearly communicate your medical preferences when it matters most. Who will speak for you if you are unable? What type of treatment do you want? What is not acceptable treatment? Your decision on organ donation and any other important information you’d like your loved ones to know.

The form has three parts:

  1. Choose a medical decision maker when you are too sick to make them yourself
  2. Make your own choices about the kind of healthcare you want
  3. Signature and witness page
