The Five Wishes® is a medical Power of Attorney document that names a person who can make decisions for you if you cannot. This person is chosen by you, and named in the document to make certain that your wishes are followed if you’re suddenly facing hospice care, palliative care or a serious health issue.
This living will form is easy to understand and comes in 23 languages as well as Braille. Five Wishes® can be used as a guide to help you choose your wishes. It allows you to specify what you want and don’t want, and helps you leave clear instructions for your caretakers.
Our Five Wishes® form is not printable. If you’d like to complete the form, you can:
Aurora Health Care sponsors advance care planning workshops that focus on the medical Power of Attorney document. During the workshops, which are offered in Metropolitan Milwaukee, trained professionals provide information and assistance about how to plan for your future health care should you become incapacitated.
This information will allow you to think about your choices and help you reflect on how to discuss your wishes with your physician and family members. Advance Directive documents will be available at the workshops.
