Advance Directives

Today, advances in medicine and medical technology save many lives that only 60 years ago might have been lost. Unfortunately, sometimes this same technology also artificially prolongs life for people with no reasonable hope of recovery.

No one likes to think about death and dying, but they are inescapable realities of life. Armed with the information and forms in the Ohio Choices, Living Well at the End of Life packet ( see below for what the packet includes) you can take control of choices regarding your medical future. And, by storing your advance directives with the U.S. Living Will Registry have those choices available when you need it, wherever you are. All forms must be printed, filled out and mailed via U.S. Mail to the addresses indicated. If you have questions, please call Mercy HealthLink at 419-251-4000 for assistance.
