Thinking through Health Care Directives

Thinking through Health Care Directives

There are two types of health care directives in Wisconsin; Power of Attorney for Health Care and Living Will. If you cannot make your own health care decisions, Mr. Kriger recommends that you have an agent appointed under a health care power of attorney who can make your health care decisions in order to make you better. If you are in a terminal condition or permanent loss of consciousness you can chose to be kept as comfortable and pain free as possible and to not receive treatment that will only artificially postpone the moment of death. To be sure your wishes are carried out; at a time when your chosen health care agent is not available you should also have a living will which is a directive to your attending physician to carry out your wishes regarding termination of life supports.
