Taking a proactive approach to decisions involving your health gives you control when you can no longer communicate your wishes. A Health Care Directive can also shield your family from making a difficult decision regarding the end of your life. A Health Care Directive is sometimes erroneously referred to as a “Living Will”. The previous version of the document was known as a “Directive to Physicians”. The Health Care Directive is a written document that provides direction to your physician with respect to the use of artificial life-support systems to prolong life beyond the point of natural death.
