As a community service, Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice of the Florida Keys (VNA/HFK) is offering complimentary copies of the Five Wishes®, an advance directive tool. Don’t wait for a medical crisis to happen. Make your wishes known, and name the person who will speak for you when you can no longer speak for yourself. Complete the Five Wishes® today, so your family and friends won’t have to make those hard choices.

The Five Wishes®

  1. Who will make health care decisions for you when you can’t.
  2. The kind of medical treatment you want or do not want.
  3. What you want done for your physical comfort.
  4. What you want done for your emotional and spiritual comfort.
  5. 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.
