A time may come when someone else will have to make decisions about your health or other personal care. You can name someone to make decisions on your behalf. You can record your instructions, wishes, values, and beliefs in a document called a personal directive. If you think ahead about what kinds of care you might want when that happens, you have a better chance of getting that care. You can also make it easier for the people who make those decisions for you.

Go here to use our free online Personal Directive App to make your personal directive.
