Advance Healthcare Directives

HealthcareAdvance healthcare directives allow individuals to specify their desired outcome in circumstances wherein they are medically unable to make their own decisions about end-of-life decisions. Over 50% of surveyed Americans want to retain the ability to make such decisions, but only 43% have shared their desires with family members, loved ones, or friends. An even lesser 25% have actually created an advance healthcare directive to provide for their end-of-life decisions. These figures were compiled through a Google Consumer Survey collected by Pixld, LLC, in February of 2014.
