Cinco Deseos is an easy-to-use legal document that lets Spanish-speaking adults plan how they want to be cared for in case they become seriously ill. Like Five Wishes, it is written in everyday language and speaks to all a person’s concerns: medical, personal, emotional and spiritual. Cinco Deseos also helps structure discussions with your family and physician.
There are only eight states remaining in which Cinco Deseos does not yet meet the legal requirements. These states either require a specific state form or that the person completing an advance directive be given a mandatory notice or “warning.” Residents of these states can still use Cinco Deseos to put their wishes in writing and communicate their wishes with their family and physician. Most health care professionals understand they have a duty to listen to the wishes of their patients no matter how they are expressed.
