Advance Directive General Information
Advance Directives are a class of legal documents intended to designate someone to take care of financial and/or medical decisions while a person is alive, but unable to make decisions due to mental or physical incapacitation.
In order to execute an Advance Directive, the person signing and executing it must be within their full mental capacity and fully cognizant of what they are signing (and why). If mental capacity is lost, for example due to Alzheimer's or Dementia, these documents can no longer be prepared and put in place.
