Assure Your Wishes

February 09, 2011

When planning for your estate,  advisors will often suggest you complete a Health Care Proxy form.  These can be found at the NYS DOH or be obtained from your advisor.  This is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and family.  Making your wishes known gives you a piece of mind while taking a great burden off of your loved ones. 


The Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (MOLST) is a new vehicle designed to assure that your rights and wishes are met when you are unable to make decisions.   The information contained in the MOLST includes your values and beliefs.  It is completed based on your current medical condition and involves discussions with family members, your physician and your health care agent or surrogate.  The goal is to ascertain what would you want to happen in regard to your treatment in the event you are unable to communicate your wishes and in the absence of Health Care Proxy or other legal health care directive.


We encourage everyone to have a completed Health Care Proxy Form.  The laws offer protection designed to insure that you are the decision maker at all times.   Please take the time to discuss your wishes with your loved ones.  Ask your physician questions and utilize some of the many online resources like those listed below
