with this easy-to-use package, to ensure that your wishes are followed in the event that you become physically or mentally incapacitated.
A Personal Directive is also called an advance health care directive

. It allows you to appoint an agent - someone you trust - to act on your behalf, and you can give your agent detailed instructions and set out your wishes regarding medical care, living conditions, personal and legal matters.
The Package contains:
- Personal Directive form,
- instructions on how to complete the form,
- Declaration of Incapacity forms,
- frequently asked questions about personal directives,
- a Personal Directive questionnaire, which should be filled out first to help you prepare your Directive.
