Create Your Own Advance Healthcare Directive

By April 14, 2013

This Tuesday, April 16, marks the sixth annual National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD). The purpose of NHDD is to both educate the public about the importance of creating an advance healthcare directive and to provide the tools necessary to do so.

If you haven't created an advance directive yet (and only 29% of the American public has), then I encourage you to watch this brief video by NHDD, which simply-yet-powerfully conveys why you shouldn't let another year pass without making an advance healthcare directive of your own!

Once you've checked out the video, then please read the article I wrote that walks you through the eight simple steps necessary to create your advance directive.

Have you created a living will? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.
