  • Keep areas where you walk clean
  • Avoid using throw rugs or area rugs
    • Use grab bars in your shower

    Advance Directive

    An advanced directive is a legal document that provides your family and care team a guide to what medical care you want if you were to be incapacitated or unable to speak for yourself.

    Our office provides our patients the option to complete an advance directive in office. Once complete, we will scan a copy into your chart for our records. Advance directives can be updated at any moment you wish, just let your care team know.

    If you wish to update your Advance Directive prior to your appointment, please down the PDF and complete the form. It is important that you do not sign the form before coming in as it requires 2 witnesses.
