(New York, NY) – During the beginning of the new year, while New Yorkers vow to exercise and eat healthier, save more money and cut down on the amount of reality TV shows watched, Senator Liz Krueger (D-Manhattan) is urging all New Yorkers to fill out a Health Care Proxy, a resolution that will bring comfort and clarity to end-of-life decisions.

A Health Care Proxy (or some other form of Advance Directive), enables an individual to make important decisions about his/her health care planning, particularly regarding end-of-life care.

Health Care Proxy & Living Will Information

Living Wills and the appointment of a person who can function as your health care proxy are important decisions we all should make related to how we wish to be treated as our life ends. These decisions are not just considerations for the frail and elderly, but choices to be made when we are alert and willing to evaluate our views on end- of- life care. Discussions with close family and friends is a good way to have opinions known, but will have greater relevance if they are also supported by a living will and a health care proxy.
