Health Care Planning Guides Are Now Available
Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer would like residents to know that Planning Your Health Care in Advance Guides are available at her Rockaway Beach and Ozone Park offices.
The guide, published by the Office of the Attorney General, offers valuable information on your rights to choose medical treatments and describes the steps you can take under state law to help ensure that your personal health care decisions are known and honored if you are unable to speak for yourself.
"This guide is a valuable resource for anyone wishing to obtain further information on health care planning and to ensure that their wishes are respected and that your health care decisions stay in the hands of people you trust," said Pheffer.
The guide contains information on the various sample advance directive forms available and offers tips on how to use them.
If you are interested in receiving a copy of the health care planning guide, you may stop in either of Assemblywoman Pheffer's offices at 90-16 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Rockaway Beach; or 108-14 Crossbay Boulevard, Ozone Park. The application and announcement can also be downloaded from the Attorney General's website at www.oag.state.ny.us.
