Medical Directive Statements/Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare
Our friends at Christian Life Resources have developed a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care - Christian Version document to enable Christians to provide informed, legal and Christ-centered direction for their medical care in the event they can no longer express their wishes. This is a legal document that allows you to designate a person to serve as your health care agent, allows you to make some selections regarding the kind of treatment or care you want provided, and includes a Christian witness to your faith and to the sanctity of human life.
