Advance Healthcare Directive (AHCD).

A California AHCD can be filled out online. The form and instructions are available on this link:

** California AHCD (https://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/agweb/pdfs/consumers/ProbateCodeAdvancedHealthCareDirectiveForm-fillable.pdf)

After completing the form, print, sign, and date it at the end. The form must also be signed by two qualified witnesses or a notary public.

Give a copy of the signed and completed form to your physician, any other health care providers you may have, to any health care institution at which you are receiving care, and to any health care agent(s) you have named. We recommend keeping a copy at home in plain sight in case paramedics need to come into your home.

Talk to the person you have named as your agent to make sure they understand your wishes and are willing to take the responsibility.
