NOTE: The sites below contain extensive and helpful legal information, but none of the sites listed below can be used as substitutes for the personal advice that you may need from a lawyer.
Most of the sites themselves have disclaimers stating that laws are constantly changing and that only a lawyer can provide specific advice on which you can depend.
Extensive legal information is found in the sites, and much of it is geared to the lay person, but personal advice from a lawyer may be necessary for anyone doing legal research.

State of Tennessee Advance Directive for Health Care Form
In 2004, Tennessee law was revised to recognize more than one written advance directives for health care decision making the “Living Will” or “Advance Care Plan” and the “Medical Power of Attorney” or “Appointment of Health Care Agent”. Effective May 9, 2017, the Advance Directive for Health Care form has combined the content of the “Living Will” or “Advance Care Plan” and “Medical Power of Attorney” or “Appointment of Health Care Agent” into one model form adopted by the Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities. This document can be used to inform your family and doctor of your decisions about your health care should you become unable to decide for yourself. You can also use the form to appoint someone you know and trust to be your health care decision maker.
