Advance Health Care Directives

End of life planning is never an easy topic of discussion. In fact, many families find it all too easy to avoid the subject altogether. Establishing a person's desires regarding health care through an advance health care directive is, however, one of the most important aspects of developing a comprehensive estate plan.

At Robertson, Oswalt and Associates, in Little Rock, Arkansas, we help our clients to understand their options when it comes to end of life planning and how an advance health care directive plays a role.

What Is An Advance Health Care Directive?

An advance health care directive is a document that allows an individual to express his or her wishes regarding the health care and treatment he or she would like to receive in the event of disability, injury or disease that makes it impossible to communicate with doctors. Typically, advance health care directives address issues such as:

  • Whether doctors should use extraordinary measures such as feeding tubes or breathing machines to save or prolong a person's life
  • Whether a person wishes to donate his or her organs
  • Instructions regarding a person's remains

Our experienced lawyers work closely with our clients to craft advance health care directives that address their concerns and ensure that their wishes are fulfilled.
