April 16th - Health Care Decision Day in Wisconsin

Governor Jim Doyle has declared April 16, 2009, to be Health Care Decision Day in Wisconsin. The idea is to raise public awareness of the need to plan ahead for health care decisions related to end of life care and medical decision-making whenever patients are unable to speak for themselves.

Basic forms are available on the Wisconsin Department of Health Service's web site. As always, I recommend you consult with an attorney specializing in the area of estate planning to ensure that your paperwork is accurate, complete, and compliant with Wisconsin law.
