Authored By: Statewide Elder Law Taskforce

A self-help guide to plan for incapacity including advance directive forms for Louisiana. By using advance directives, you can control your health care decisions, even if you become incapacitated in the future. You prepare the advance directives while you are capable of making your own decisions. Generally, they take the form of instructions to your doctor, or the appointment of someone to make decisions for you. They can cover specific treatments such as life-sustaining procedures, or be very general and cover all medical decisions.
