Bible class materials

The last two weeks, I used a copy of a document in Bible Class called Five Wishes, from agingwithdignity.org.  It was the advanced medical directive we used at Bethesda Naval Medical Center when I was there from 2004 to 2007.  To this day, I think it’s the most comprehensive of the advanced medical directives and explains everything in clear language, not medical speak or even worse legalese.

The copy I used in class came from a health care organization’s site.

Understand what you’re doing.  A Living Will is clearly stating your intentions but does not name a legal proxy.  A Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care specifically names an individual to make decisions for you, in case you can’t but doesn’t necessarily outline what your desires might be .  The Five Wishes document above does both and then some.
