Tune in this Sunday to radio 1210 WPHT as Bratton Law Group Attorney, Charles Bratton, will be on “The Big Talker” 1210 WPHT. Mr. Bratton will be LIVE at 8:15am to discuss the approaching National Healthcare Decisions Day – April 16th 2013.
National Healthcare Decisions Day exists to inspire, educate & empower the public & providers about the importance of advance care planning.
All adults can benefit from thinking about what their healthcare choices would be if they are unable to speak for themselves. These decisions can be written down in an advance directive so that others know what they are. Advance directives come in two main forms:
- A “healthcare power of attorney” (or “proxy” or “agent” or “surrogate”) documents the person you select to be your voice for your healthcare decisions if you cannot speak for yourself.
- A “living will” documents what kinds of medical treatments you would or would not want at the end of life.
Tune in this Sunday to hear attorney Charles Bratton discuss and answer questions.
