Health Care Directives – One of Life’s Most Important Decisions
California law provides individuals with the ability to document their health care wishes in the event they are unable to make health care decisions themselves. This may include documenting authorizations for organ donations, documenting the type of care and treatment you would want to receive, expressing end of life decisions, and selecting someone to make health care decisions for you when you are unable to do so yourself. The person you name as an agent in your health care directive will be responsible for making healthcare decisions for you if you lose the ability to make the decisions yourself.
