Health Care Proxy Registry Moving To NY Connects
The health care proxy registry started by the Chautauqua County Health Network is moving to Chautauqua County NY Connects.
Chautauqua County’s Health Care Proxy registry will continue to be available to individuals wishing to document and share their proxy with healthcare professionals in Chautauqua County. NY Connects is your trusted place to go for free, unbiased information about long term services and supports in New York State for people of all ages or with any type of disability. It makes sense to house your Health Care Proxy document with NY Connects so it can be shared with your local health providers and hospitals when needed.
A Healthy Care Proxy is a legal document that allows someone to make your health care decisions should you be unable to make decisions about your care usually at the end of life. NY Connects provides options to people of all ages about services available in the community. We also help caregivers who may be helping you to make decisions about medical and non-medical services necessary to maintain your independence. While a health care proxy is not necessary to access services through NY Connects, we can not predict when our health might change and a health care proxy may be needed. For this reason NY Connects encourages people of all ages to fill out a health care proxy. This information is only available to health care providers when you can’t make decisions for yourself and your proxy is needed to explain your wishes for your care. As an aging and disability resource center, NY Connects is a resource for people of all ages, families, caregivers, and professionals. Chautauqua NY Connects was established in 2006 by the New York State Office for the Aging in collaboration with the New York State Department of health.
The health care proxy registry is an important part of planning for your health. The objective remains to ensure that Chautauqua County residents have a way to share and communicate their end of life wishes. Chautauqua County NY Connects will continue this mission by offering this valued service. Please visit the health care proxy registry web site at https://chqregistry.com
