West Palm Beach VA Medical Center
Each (Wish) Wednesday the West Palm Beach VA holds an Advance Directive clinic to assist Veterans with completing their advance directives.
An Advance Directive is a legal form that helps your doctors and loved ones understand your wishes about medical and mental health care if there is a time you are too ill to decide for yourself. Completing the paperwork is creating a gift to your family of peace of mind as they better understand what you do and do not want.
The VA form does not cost any money to complete and is valid in most states, all of the VA and in Florida. You have the right to accept or refuse any medical treatment. You have the right to complete Advance Directives and to change at any time. If you can't make it to Wish Wednesdays, no big deal! Just call 561-422-6846 or visit your primary care social worker.
