A Medical or Health Care Directive is an essential component of your estate plan. But what exactly is a [medical] directive?
“It is a legal document in which an individual specifies their decisions for caregivers in the event of illness or dementia and directs end of life decisions. Health care directives are also known as living wills, durable health care powers of attorney or medical directives. But they all serve the same function: to provide guidance and direction on how one’s medical and death decisions should be made.” – Megan Gorman
