Medical Directives / Advance Directives

Planning an Estate in Prince George’s County, MD

If you want to be certain that your wishes are observed in regard to medical treatment, end-of-life care, resuscitation, and health care in general – even if you are unable to make these decisions for yourself due to disability, illness, or injury, an advance directive will be an essential part of your estate plan. Sometimes referred to as medical directives, advance directives are legal documents that set forth your wishes regarding medical care and authorize a trusted individual to make health care decisions for you.

In Maryland, there are two parts to an advance directive:

  • The first is the living will, which sets forth your wishes regarding life-sustaining medical treatment and end-of-life care if you suffer an illness or injury that leaves you in a permanent state of unconsciousness or will likely claim your life.
  • The second is a durable power of attorney for health care, which names a person of your choosing to represent you and make medical decisions on your behalf, if you are unable to do so.

Keep your medical treatment in your own hands. Call (301) 329-2189 to set up an advance directive with Prince George’s County estate planning lawyer E. Regine Francois.
