A personal directive is like a living will, which outlines end-of-life wishes, but it’s broader. A personal directive can be about all health care decisions, where you live, the activities you take part in, etc.
- You choose one or more persons you trust to make personal decisions for you if, in the future, you can’t make them yourself because of illness or injury. The person(s) you choose is called your agent.
- You write a personal directive when you can still make your own decisions. Your agent does not step in until you need help, which is confirmed through a capacity assessment.
- If you get better, you can take back the power to make your own decisions. This is also confirmed through a capacity assessment.
