UF Health Advance Directive Educating Others About End-Of-Life Care
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- How would you communicate with your family if you weren't actually able to speak for yourself? Medical emergencies often leave families in this predicament, having to make heart- breaking decisions about their loved ones.
Members of the Advanced Directive team at UF Health are working to educate people about the importance of creating medical documents for end-of-life care. They say making these decisions yourself could save your loved ones from some very difficult choices.
"It's not just for people towards the end of their life or that have been diagnosed with terminal disease," says UF Health Advance Directives Co-Chair Anthony Clarizio, "something could happen to them tomorrow and somebody has to speak on their behalf."
