Advance Directives are a form of legal document that tells the doctor your wishes for healthcare. They can be very general or very specific. What they all have in common is that no one will be able to control your money or personal property based on your Advance Directive. You may change or revoke them (take them back) at any time. Advanced Directives for CA (and other states) are available at the CaringInfo.org website.
