Advance Directives in Virginia
Why are Advance Directives important?
An accident, illness, or mental health crisis can make you unable to make decisions about your health care at any time. An Advance Directive is a legal document that lets you give directions about your care and/or select a trusted decision-maker ahead of time, so that your health care providers will know and honor your wishes if you become too ill to decide for yourself.
