Making End-of-life medical decisions in California

Providing Peace of Mind One Estate Plan at A Time

Every good estate plan includes some type of medical Power of Attorney or Advance Directive. This document appoints a "health care agent" to make medical decisions for you if you become incapacitated, and it spells out your end-of-life medical care wishes.

In some states, this document is know as a "Living Will". In California, it's known as an Advance Health Care Directive.

At the Stephens Law Group, we encourage all our clients to think and talk with loved ones about their decisions for end-of-life medical care, organ donation, and life support, among other issues.

Which health care directive do we recommend for our California estate planning clients? The one published by the California Medical Association, which you may purchase (it's cheap -- only about $6) here:
