Advance Directive For Health Care

Do you want life support if you become totally and permanently incapacitated? Who do you want to make health care decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so? Do you want your health care professional to make those critical medical decision? You can help make those decision for yourself by adopting a Advance Directive for Health Care, before the onset of a health crisis. Georgia has adopted statutory guidelines for Advance Directives for Health Care at O.C.G.A. Title 31, Chapter 32. The law provides for Living Wills or Durable Powers of Attorney for Health Care executed prior to July 1, 2007 to remain in full force and effect. A general durable power of attorney does not help in making decisions about medical treatment.
