If you are in Queensland, we can help you with your Advance Health Directive.
An advance health directive (AHD)—sometimes called a living will—is a formal way to give instructions about your future health care. It comes into effect only if your cognitive health deteriorates and you become unable to make your own decisions (i.e. lose capacity to make decisions).
By completing this purchase, one of our Australian Legal Practitioners will contact you to book a consultation (unless you wish to book your appointment online) and take further instructions to complete the document. If you are unable to attne our office, we can prepare the document and send it to your nominated address for execution by you, your medical practitioner and the appointed Attorney/s.
Advance Health Directive
An advance health directive:
- outlines what medical treatment or health care you want if you can no longer make decisions for yourself. It can be general (e.g. that you wish to receive all available treatment) or specific (e.g. that you wish to decline a certain medical treatment)
- enables you to appoint an attorney for health and personal matters
- includes information that health professionals should know, including health conditions, allergies, and religious, spiritual or cultural beliefs that could affect your care.
