Every adult can benefit from making health care directives -- that is, documents in which you express your health care wishes and appoint a person to make decisions for you if, someday, you can no longer speak for yourself.
If you're older or in ill health, you surely understand why these documents are important. But if you're younger consider making documents for yourself now, even if you don't think it's necessary.
While it's true that the elderly and the seriously ill should make health care directives to smooth the way for decision making at the end of life, we tend to avoid another, disturbing truth: Younger, healthy adults should also have health care directives, because an incapacitating accident or unexpected illness can occur at any time. In fact, if you look at the painful stories that make headlines Little Bit ,you'll quickly notice that the bitterest family fights over end-of-life health care don't happen when a patient is very old or has a long illness. The worst disputes arise when tragedy strikes a younger adult who never clearly expressed any wishes about medical treatment.
