Advanced Directives

Designation of Health Care Surrogate

A Designation of Health Care Surrogate (DHCS) is another document in the “Advanced Directives” portfolio that allows for the appointment of another person to perform medical decisions for you on your behalf if you're unable to do so (i.e., can be due to temporary or permanent health conditions).

An experienced estate planning and probate attorney can help you determine what Advance Directives are appropriate for you and your family.
