What is an advance directive for healthcare?

This legal document is written by a person who wants to have specific actions taken in case they are incapacitated. Too often, people endure an injury or suffer an illness and are unable to speak.

With this document, the family and doctors will know exactly what you want in case you are unable to communicate. This relieves feelings of stress and anxiety from family members knowing that they are honoring your wishes.

What is written in this directive?
