Establishing advance directives regarding future health care decisions can ensure that a person's wishes are met and can also relieve families from having to make difficult decisions at a time of great stress.
The Missouri Bar has developed and makes available as a public service a "Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care and Health Care Directive" for use by the general public. This form may be downloaded and/or photocopied as needed. There is no copyright on this publication. Visit missourilawyershelp.org/legal-topics/durable-power-of-attorney-for-health
