Advance Directives - Living Will, Power of Attorney
It is important to make provisions for your health care in the event you are unable to make those decisions for yourself.
A living will is a document instructing physicians, relatives or others to refrain from the use of extraordinary measures, such as life-support equipment, to prolong one's life in the event of a terminal illness.
Power of attorney is a written document giving someone you specify the legal ability to act on your behalf.
The Wisconsin Department of Health and Human services has advance directive forms available on their website.
