Public Health Agencies, up and down California, are asking the general public to protect themselves and their loved ones, to prepare and have available necessary LEGAL documents that provide the authority needed for family or trusted advisors to act on their behalf when they cannot.
These documents include:
- An Advanced Health Care Directive, appointing another person to make medical decisions for you when you cannot. Download Here
