California Advance Healthcare Directive

A comprehensive healthcare directive not only spells out your preferences for medical and end-of-life care (including your wishes regarding ventilation, feeding tubes, resuscitation, nursing home care, etc.), but this document also allows you to appoint a person you trust to make decisions and communicate with doctors if you are unable.

If you don’t already have a healthcare directive created as part of your estate plan, you can download this important legal document free of charge by filling out this form below:

CLIENT Story

I was absolutely without a clue as to how to begin or what I should do to establish an estate plan. I did know that I wanted someone I could trust, that was honest and I would have confidence in. I was referred to Heather by my friend who was being legally advised by Heather on another estate. She was very satisfied with her work and thought I might be happy with her service. At our consultation appointment, her presentation was very thorough. I had lots of questions, and she was easy to talk to and was able to guide me to just the kind of estate plan I needed. That was 10 years ago. Due to circumstances in my life, I have had to make changes to my plan, and I always go back to her for her legal services and guidance. I have recommended Heather before.
