Advance Care/End of Life Documents & Guides

From the Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops:

The Florida Catholic Conference of Bishops provides resources to assist with advance care planning. Designating a health care surrogate and providing guidance for end-of-life decisions is the best way to ensure that morally acceptable procedures are followed if you become incapacitated or unable to express your own wishes in the event of a medical emergency.

Three items, approved by the bishops of Florida, are particularly useful:

  • A Catholic Introduction to End-of-Life Planning is a brochure to assist you as you begin your discussions with family, friends, health care providers and clergy.
  • The Catholic Declaration on Life and Death (CDLD) combines a designation of health care surrogate and living will into one document and is designed to be completed and shared with your health care provider(s).
  • Understanding the Catholic Declaration on Life and Death (UCDLD) is the companion to the CDLD and addresses common concerns and questions.

All the documents are available in both English and Spanish and are available for downloading and printing from the FCCB website. Please click here view those documents.

From the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops:
