An Advanced Health Directive, known by some as a "living will" is a legal document that specifies the actions to be taken in the event an individual is no longer able to make decisions for themselves due to being ill or incapacitated. A living will allows an individual to leave instructions and authorize someone to carry our those specific instructions. If you are thinking of enacting a living will, you may want to also consider completing the process of setting up a power of attorney or healthcare proxy document as well.
