Advance Directives

Medical Advance Directives Information

The Michigan Legislature has prepared a booklet entitled, “Planning for your Peace of Mind: A Guide to Medical and Legal Decisions”. This booklet was designed to assist you in preplanning by providing question-and-answer sections, general information and forms on Michigan’s Statutory Will and Patient Advocate law and organ donation.

This booklet is not intended to replace the advice of a legal professional when it comes to making long-term care and end-of-life decisions. For additional information or if you are in need of a referral for legal counsel, please contact:
