Free materials authored by volunteer lawyers and provided by The Missouri Bar can help Missourians draft their own durable power of attorney for health care.

The Missouri Bar is using National Healthcare Decisions Day, or NHDD, to remind Missourians about the free resources.

The president of The Missouri Bar, Tom Bender, said in a release that the forms help to ensure a person's health care choices will be honored, while preventing family members and providers from having to make difficult decisions alone.

The durable power of attorney and health care directive form is available in both English and Spanish.

The form is online at missourilawyershelp.org. Missourians can also call The Missouri Bar at 573-635-4128.
