Advance Health Directives

What is an Advance Health Directive?

An Advance Health Directive give you the care you would want when you are not able to make decisions. Advance Directives tells others how to make-end-of-life care choices for you as well as your desire for CPR, diagnostic testing, surgical procedures, and organ or tissue donation.

Why do I Need an Advance Directive?

You could get sick or have an accident that leaves you unable to make decisions at times. Without an Advance Directive, those making decisions for you may not know what you want. Help your family and friends to you help: name an agent and tell your agent and family about your health care wishes.

When Should I Make an Advance Directive

The best time is before you need one! Young people as well as older people should think about an Advance Directive. I can be changed or cancelled at any time.

Instructions for completion of an Advance Health Care Directive form are available: https://oag.ca.gov/consumers/general/care
