What is an Advance Health Care Directive?

Formerly called a “Living Will” or “Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care”, an Advance Health Care Directive allows us to deal with the situation where decisions regarding our healthcare need to be made and we are unable to communicate at that time.

The Advance Health Care Directive names an “Agent” (any person(s) of your choosing) to manage your medical and health care affairs in the event you are unable to express your preferences.  The medical professionals will make this determination.

This document, like the Durable Power of Attorney is fully revocable and amendable.
