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.
