Advance Health Care Directives
Establishing an advance health care directive has many advantages. Such a legal document can keep decisions in your hands or the hands of a trusted loved one, rather than letting a court decide. Furthermore, leaving explicit instructions regarding your future medical treatment can spare your loved ones from vexing decisions and potential disputes.
Advance health care directives can include:
- Health care proxies: A health care proxy appoints a trusted person to act as your health care representative in the event you become incapacitated.
- Living wills: A living will is a set of instructions regarding your medical treatment.
Advance health care directives do not go into effect until a doctor has deemed you do not have the ability to make sound decisions for yourself. If you should regain your capacity, the directive will be terminated.
