Georgia Advance Directive for Healthcare Form

A Georgia Advance Directive (Medical Power of Attorney + Living Will) is a form that can be used by any adult of sound mind to plan for how they wish to be cared for in the event they can no longer care for themselves. The form combines a Medical POA and a Living Will, allowing the Principal (person completing the form) to assign a Health Care Agent to make decisions for themselves, as well as an area for specifying the types of medical care they’d like to receive.
