The Diocese of Wilmington offers a Catholic Advance Health Care Directive for Delaware. A health care directive allows individuals to declare their health care decisions. You have the right to make your own decisions about your health care. At some point, you may be unable to make a competent decision, due to physical or mental incapacity. In those circumstances, those caring for you will need to turn to someone who knows my values and health care intentions. By signing an Advanced Health Care Directive, you will provide the guidance and authority needed to implement you wishes. A copy of the directive may be viewed and printed by clicking here.
