About Us

Our Story
Honoring Choices® Tennessee, established in 2015, is a nonprofit statewide coalition dedicated to the vision that all Tennesseans complete an advance directive. 

An advance directive – sometimes called a living will -- is a written statement of your wishes regarding medical treatment if you are unable to speak for yourself. This could occur after an accident, during the final stages of a serious illness, or if you should become mentally incompetent. You can complete an advance directive quickly at no cost, but the majority of Tennessee residents have not completed one.

The mission of Honoring Choices® Tennessee is that Tennesseans:
  • discuss their choices for care at the end of life with family, friends, and their physician;
  • complete an advance directive memorializing their choices; and
  • they live with the knowledge and freedom that they have expressed their choices and that their choices regarding care will be honored.

We have affiliated with national partners to provide the best resources for individuals, families, organizations, and healthcare professionals.
