Health Care Directives

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 ("agent") to decide for you if you are unable to decide. It also allows you to name an agent if you want someone else to decide for you. You must be at least 18 years old to make a Health Care Directive. Read the Health Care Directives brochure to learn more.
