With an advance healthcare directive, you can designate a trusted individual to make decisions on your behalf if you cannot do so while guiding your healthcare providers on how to administer your treatment. Whether it’s ensuring comfort and pain relief during a terminal illness or insisting on a specific treatment regardless of your condition, advance directives allow you to articulate your wishes and maintain control over your medical care.
