A medical directive is a legal document that provides instructions for how your medical care should proceed in the event that you are unable to make that decision for yourself. It is a valuable document, and it can help ensure that all Michigan residents are fully prepared. We also encourage everyone to set up a power of attorney for health care. This will ensure that someone you trust will have the ability to make the decisions for you that are in your best interests.
