Complete the Five Wishes® today, so your family and friends won’t have to make those hard choices.
The Five Wishes®
- Who will make health care decisions for you when you can’t.
- The kind of medical treatment you want or do not want.
- What you want done for your physical comfort.
- What you want done for your emotional and spiritual comfort.
- What you want your loved ones to know.
Five Wishes® is easy to understand and complete – respected by doctors, lawyers, hospitals, faith communities, employers, retiree groups and hospices – and recognized in 42 states. If your circumstances change, or you change your mind, you can create a new advance directive at any time. Your advance directive gives you the opportunity to make you own choices about the kinds of care you receive, and your Five Wishes® are yours to keep or to change, as you wish.
VNA/HFK provides this booklet free of charge to encourage everyone to make their heathcare wishes known. Five Wishes® brochures are available. To get your free copy of Five Wishes®, please call 305-852-7887 or 305-294-8812.
