Advanced Directives and Living Wills

An advanced directive ensures that both medical professionals and your loved ones understand the end-of-life decisions you want in the event you’re unable to explain them due to a medical emergency. An advanced directive is simply a statement, made while you are competent, about the medical treatment you want if you can’t make those decisions later. Decisions made early and communicated plainly may have tremendous value for you and your family.

To obtain a copy of Five Wishes, an advanced directive document that addresses all of an individual's needs (medical, personal, emotional, and spiritual), call Capital Health Plan's Health Information Line at (850) 383-3400.

Through the Planning Early About Care at the End (PEACE) program, Big Bend Hospice offers individualized assistance in completing the Five Wishes Advanced Directive .  To schedule an appointment with a PEACE facilitator, contact Big Bend Hospice at (850) 878-5310 or visit the Big Bend Hospice website.
