If someday you are not able to speak, how will you be able to make your intentions known about the medical treatment you wish to receive? The answer is an advance directive, commonly called a “living will.” This document can make it clear which measures you want to be taken or not taken should you be unable to communicate your wishes.
At Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C., we draft advance directives on behalf of people at all stages of life. We work closely with each client to explore the client’s personal desires and religious values, and to create documents that accurately express his or her desires regarding end-of-life medical treatment.
For more information and consultation about an advance directive, contact our firm.
In addition to drafting an advance directive, Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C. can also create a health care proxy. This document names someone who can make medical care decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so. That person will look to the advance directive for guidance regarding medical treatment should that time come.
Many people become uncomfortable when thinking about the possibility of disability or death. Before drafting your advance directive and health care proxy, we will take great care to understand your values and wishes. Then we will create documents that accurately express your desires. These can make it clear to your family what you want to be done or not done, sparing them from having to make difficult choices and ensuring your wishes are met.
