How To Prepare For Travel After A Diagnosis

Revisit Advance Healthcare Directives and take a copy with you.

Next » « Previous


While planning a trip it makes sense to revisit the documents that cover what happens if medical decisions need to be made, but for some reason you can't make them -- particularly Advance Healthcare Directives such as your Living Will and Healthcare Proxy. (For information about advance health care directives, including what they are, who to choose to represent you, and tips to tell them about enforcing your wishes, click here.)

Be sure the person or people named to make decisions in your advance directives will be available 24 hours a day during your trip. If not, consider preparing another set of documents naming someone else who will be available during that time.  When you get home, rip up the temporary directives. 

Carry a copy of your advance healthcare directivefs with you when you travel "just in case."
