Planning for Your Future Health Care

None of us like to think about a time when we are unable to make or communicate our health care decisions, but most people have strong opinions about how they want their end-of-life health care handled. An advance health care directive (often called a "living will") allows you to communicate those wishes ahead of time. If you are ever in a situation where you become incapacitated (cognitively unable to make decisions about your own care) or otherwise unable to communicate your wishes (persistent vegetative state), your health care directive will be in place to ensure your wishes are met.

Our attorneys serve clients throughout Southern California from our offices in Irvine and Riverside. Living wills attorneys from Fernandez & Lauby LLP focus on getting the results our clients need. Talk with us at a free initial consultation. We will take the time to understand your health care goals so we can help you craft an effective health care directive.

Advance Health Care Directive

Life experiences, our hopes and fears, and our religious convictions can all play an important role in our views regarding end-of-life health care. Some people hate the idea of being kept alive by machines but unable to live a normal life, and others want to be kept alive at all costs; still others have religious or philosophical convictions about pain medication. The most important thing is that, with an advance health care directive, you get to determine ahead of time how these matters will be handled.

With an advance health care directive, you can:

  • Communicate your beliefs: If you follow a specific belief system that affects your views on end-of-life health care, you can communicate those beliefs here.
  • Communicate your wishes: You can communicate, with as much specificity as you want, your desires for how your end-of-life health care will be handled.
  • Name a health care agent: You can name someone you trust to authoritatively take charge of your health care decisions to minimize conflict and confusion.
