Health Care Directive
A Health Care Directive has two purposes:
- Naming a sequence of individuals who can make health care decisions for you in case you cannot speak for yourself
- Setting out your wishes regarding your medical treatment if you are terminal and dying
The Health Care Directive applies in all situations when you cannot make decisions for yourself, not just when you are terminal and dying.
No attorney is necessary for you to sign a legal Health Care Directive because the blank forms are available at your doctor’s office. At JD Legal Planning PLLC, we prepare a Health Care Directive uniquely for you as part of your estate plan package, with options that are not included on the blank forms.
