Advance Directives & Living Wills
The Buncombe County Council on Aging provides this video to help you consider an Advance Directive for a loved one, or, for yourself.
About this topic
An Advance Directive is a written statement of a person’s wishes regarding medical treatment, often accompanied by a living will, to help ensure a person’s wishes are carried out should the person be unable to communicate directly with a doctor or other caregiver. We recommend that you submit completed Advance Directives for your records with The Family Health Centers.
