The freedom to decide one’s own destiny is the right of every competent person. This includes the right to accept or refuse medical treatments. But if we become critically ill, we may not be able to make these decisions.

 

The purpose of this book is to help you take control of and record your wishes for your health and personal care for a future time.

If you are unable to speak for yourself, the ‘Let Me Decide’ Advance Care Directive will speak for you. It is your Living Will.

My hope is that this book and its form will open up a constructive dialogue between healthcare practitioners and the general public.
