Alisa, any doctor's office or hospital can give you a blank Advanced Directives form. If she is too demented to sign it, then you are too late to do it.
Knutson, your concerns are too little and too late. Water over the dam.
These things have to be planned years in advance.

Aunt was in a nursing home for rehab following heart surgery she had a series of Tia's also she had psych eval done and did not no what a bed was or year date time, confused, a friend came in and had her trust changed to her to obtain my aunts estate without telling us the benificaries and had one taken out of the trust that had been in the trust since 1995, because this person knew she was up to something, but because she was in another state she did not tell us she was a friend that was supposedly helping her, she had phones taken from her, POA, HIPPA, and DPOA papers drawn up in her name without our knowledge, she was not capable of doing this deed on her own , how legal was this she obtained a million dollar estate when she was only suppose to get 50,000.00 the nieces were to get the house and belongings, we did not find out till after she died 6 weeks later that this friend had done all this. hELP our lawyers did nothing no discovery, investigations nothing, and paid themselves 70,000.00 and closed the case after we continuously asked for them to get the original trust which we had the copy analysed by 3 forensic handwriting experts they all said the signature was not our aunts. She was listed the trustee but I was her favorite niece and her and I were the only ones that knew where the trust was she had taken it and had it changed and then lied about the lawyer, also use to get harassing calls from her that my aunt was a pain so I knew she was up to something, but could not talk to my aunt or our lawyers would not not fight for us, how legal was this when she had 28 diagnoses, and on 21 meds.

I have a step by step guide on setting up an advance directives, that is if your mom is still competent , I have written this for seniors and long term care recipients, and might be useful for your case too. It also includes samples, the most important part that you should not forget is to get assistance from elder lawyers, they are in the best position to provide you with professional advice:

Each of my parents had one drawn up by their lawyer.

Is your mom competent to understand an advanced directive and sign her name to it? She'd have to be competent....
