ADVANCE HEALTHCARE DIRECTIVES

You have the right to make decisions about the health care you get now and in the future.  An advance directive is a written statement you prepare about how you want your medical decisions to be made in the future, if you are no longer able to make them for yourself.  The State of Illinois provides sample fill-in-the-blanks legal forms for your use to declare your healthcare desires, including the appointment of someone to act on your behalf for medical decisions.  This is especially important in the case of domestic partnerships, where the law and the courts do not yet recognize partners' rights to make medical decisions for each other.  Please evaluate your options carefully and consider preparing one or more of the following legal forms:

         Living Will

         Power of Attorney for Health Care

         Declaration for Mental Health Treatment

         Do Not Resuscitate Order
