Advance Directives

Advance Directives Resources

In 2004, Tennessee law was revised to recognize more than one written advance directives for health care decision making: the “Living Will” or “Advance Care Plan” and the “Medical Power of Attorney” or “Appointment of Health Care Agent”.

You can use these documents to let your family and doctor know your decisions for health care if you become unable to decide for yourself. You can appoint someone you know and trust as your health care decision maker to ensure that your choice or decision is honored.

You can download the new forms and information about these directives from this site.
