What are Advance Directives?

The term Advance Directive refers to estate planning documents such as a Medical Power of Attorney, a Financial Power of Attorney, a living will or do-not-resuscitate order. Such documents are important to include in your estate planning arsenal and should be discussed with your advisor to insure they are right for you and fit your goals. The do-not-resuscitate document, depending upon your health and age, may not be right for you, but again discuss this with your advisor.
