Michigan Advance Directive Form (Medical POA + Living Will)

A Michigan advance directive is a document made up of multiple segments; usually, a living will, which allows a person to describe the medical treatment they wish to receive, and a medical power of attorney, which allows a person to designate an agent to make decisions for them in the event they are unable. Advance directives are intended for future application and are put to use by medical providers when the patient is no longer capable of guiding their own medical care.
