An Advance Directive allows you to state your choices for health care or to name someone to make those choices for you, if you become unable to make decisions about your medical treatment.  In short, an Advance Directive can enable you to make decisions about your future medical treatment.  You can say “Yes” to treatment you want or say “No” to treatment you do not want.
