This is a written statement of a person’s wishes regarding medical treatment, made to ensure those wishes are carried out should the person be unable to communicate them to their doctors or family. If you would like Advance Directive forms, please ask. This does not require a lawyer. The state of Vermont also maintains an online registry of Advance Directives. You may choose to register your medical Advance Directives online, allowing medical facilities throughout the state access to your wishes should the need arise.
