Quality health care in the best place possible

Advanced Directives with Five Wishes

The Five Wishes workbook is a clear, simple way for you and your family to talk about and plans for care at the end of life. The country’s most popular living will, Five Wishes is different because it’s written in everyday language and helps people express their wishes in areas that matter most – the personal and spiritual, as well as the medical and legal.

Five Wishes was introduced and originally distributed with support from a generous grant by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the nation's largest philanthropy devoted exclusively to health and health care. 

Five Wishes helps you express how you want to be treated if you are seriously ill and unable to speak for yourself.

Five Wishes also helps structure discussions with your family and physician.
