Advance Health Care Directives and Substitute Decision Makers Booklet (COD-NL)

An Advance Health Care Directive helps all individuals to make sure that their health care wishes (written) are known if for any reason they are too sick to speak for themselves.  Substitute Decision Makers is defined as a person 19 years of age or older who will  communicate your health care wishes, if you are unable to do so. This person  can be anyone you know and trust, to carry out your directive, such as your spouse or partner, a family member or a friend. This booklet was prepared by Coalition of Persons with Disabilities – Newfoundland and Labrador (COD-NL).
