An advance care directive is a legal document that allows you to specify the type of care you wish to receive if you should no longer be able to make decisions for yourself due to illness or incapacity. A living will is another name for an advance care directive.

Without this critical document in place, you may miss the opportunity to think through all the quality-of-life issues that matter most to you. I can help you prepare this form before you may need it.
