What is an Advance Health Care Directive aka AHCD?

An Advance Health Care Directive is a set of documents consisting of a Power of Attorney for Health Care and a Living Will, that allows you to make decisions about future health care issues, by allowing you to give health care instructions, select a health care agent  or do both. By using an Advance Directive, you can also make decisions about life-sustaining procedures in the event of persistent vegetative state, terminal condition,  or end-stage conditions. You can also use the advance directive to make any other health care decisions.

You can find various examples of Advance Health Care Directives here.

    I’ve been handling my wife’s medical business without a power of attorney thus far. Perhaps I should get one now. Thanks for the info.
