Where can I get more information about advance directives?

The Delaware law related to advance health care directives is available online. See Delaware Code Title 16 Chapter 25.

If you have questions about advance directives, if you need more information, or if you want a copy of the Advance Health Care Directive form, contact the Delaware Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC).

Please remember that completing an Advance Health Care Directive involves making personal choices. If you have questions or concerns about what decisions might be best for you, you might want to consider discussing them with family members, close friends, an attorney, your doctor, and/or a member of the clergy.
