Clear Instructions for Others
Advanced Care Directives are written in legal language. Doctors aren't very good at speaking legal language. Today, some states use a POLST.
POLST (Physician Orders For Life-Sustaining Treatment) is a two-page, signed doctors order detailing in medical language what your wishes are. This may be a good document to have in addition to the Living Will and the Durable Power of Attorney. A POLST is filled out by the patient and the doctor.

Advance Directives deal with care at home, in hospice or in a hospital.
They do not deal with CPR being performed if emergency medical personnel are involved outside of the hospital. This is covered by having a No CPR signed card on your person.
