Advance Health Care Directive An advance health care directive is a legal document in which a person specifies what actions should be taken for their health if they are no longer able to make decisions for themselves because of illness or incapacity. A trusted person should be appointed who will make certain these wishes are carried out. Every adult should have an advance directive which explains the type of health care wanted or not wanted at a time when decisions cannot be made by the individual. A sample form can be found at the CANHR website at www.canhr.org/publications/ahcd.html
