At any stage of life, a medical crisis could leave you unable to make health care decisions regarding treatment. If you are unable to speak for yourself, advance directives provide doctors, family members, and other medical professionals a way to make sure you receive the medical care and treatment you would want.
Having an advance directive allows you to share your values and wants related to end-of-life care. It helps your family, friends, and caregivers by removing the burden of them having to make decisions while ensuring your wishes are respected.
Phoebe respects the wishes of all residents and keeps advance care planning documents on file, reviewing them with the resident and medical proxy if necessary. This is another way that we help residents and their loved ones know they are receiving the end-of-life care they want and deserve.
