You can inform others of your health care wishes with an advance health care directive. A health care directive is a written document that informs others of your wishes about your health care. It allows you to name a person to decide for you if you are unable to or if you want someone else to decide for you.
You don’t need to have a health care directive. But writing one helps to make sure your wishes are followed. You must be at least 18 years old to make a health care directive.
