Document Description

Whether you are 18 or 81 having a plan set in advance for your health isn’t anything less than brilliant. There is nothing wrong with planning toward the future or the ‘what ifs’ in life, especially when it comes to your health. The Iowa Advance Health Directive helps you do just that! Not only does this form help you choose your options regarding health preferences, but it helps take the burden off of family members. Often times, when there is no Health Directive placed; family members have to make the choices. This can result in disagreements, confusion, and decisions made that you would not have preferred.

This document directs any family members, agents, physicians and/or medical professionals to honor this document when dealing with the end of life treatments, life-sustaining procedures, and other options, including feeding tubes. In the case that you cannot make decisions, the information found in this document will allow you to express what you do and do not want.

The Iowa Health Care Advanced Directive should be prepared very carefully. It is important that while creating this form you are in a sane and clear state of mind. This form should be created ahead of time, so in cases of unexpected illness or emergency; it is available when needed. This document is flexible, in that you are able to state your personal preferences about your health care. You can state where you would like to be cared for including a hospital or in a hospice. You may also state if you would like to donate your organs when you pass away.

After you spend time to make your choices for your health preferences, you can save this document in the ezEstatePlanner Vault. You can always come back and make changes. In any case, you may need this form; your Keeper may also download it right from your ezEstatePlanner Vault.
