An Advance Directive is an important part of family estate planning. Specifically, this document helps individuals select authorized representatives (health care agents) and provide healthcare instructions in case they become incapacitated. Drafters in different states often refer to these documents by different names. For example, drafters may refer to an Advance Directive as a Health Care Proxy, Patient Advocate Designation, or Designation of Health Care Surrogate.

Responding to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
At Helix Compliance, we’re doing everything we can to serve during this global health emergency. In response to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic, we made all our advance care directives and healthcare documents available for free. We understand the importance of these documents and want to make sure everyone has access to them.
Importance of Advance Directives
The ability to make healthcare decisions on behalf of loved ones is very important, especially now. Many of us have certain wishes and intentions regarding our future health care and who may make decisions for us if incapacitated. Because some states are required to provide life-prolonging services to individuals upon incapacity, advance directives help make our intentions known.
We also automated some healthcare documents, which are available for you to create on your own using our self-help questionnaires. These include the New York Health Care Proxy and Living Will, the New Jersey Advance Health Care Directive, and the Michigan Patient Advocate Designation. If you live in Michigan, New Jersey, or New York, please use our automated questionnaires. Additionally, if you would like assistance, please message Laditum via the Drift messenger app on the website or you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Laditum Support at email@example.com. We are available 24/7 and are happy to help walk you through the questionnaire process or fill out the preparation form.
