Advance directives allow you to document your wishes today so your family won't have to make heart-wrenching decisions later. These directives are written in advance of serious illness. They outline your choices regarding health care, or name someone to make these choices on your behalf.
Advance directives can include living wills and durable powers of attorney for health care.
