Giving Someone a Power of Attorney For Your Health Care

Authored By: American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging

A Guide with an Easy-to-Use, Legal Form for All Adults from the ABA Commission on Law and Aging. The form in this guide is a simple version of a Health Care Advance Directive. It allows you to choose someone to make health care decisions for you if you can’t. If you name a health care agent when you are healthy, you will make sure that someone you trust can make health care decisions for you if you become too ill or injured to make them yourself.
