What Will Happen If I Dont Have A Health Care Directive And I Cant Make My Own Health Care Choices?

If you do not have a health care directive and can't make your own health care choices, your providers will probably talk to your family about what treatment is best for you. If there is disagreement, someone may seek appointment of a guardian or conservator. If this happens, you have no control over who will be named, and you can't be sure your wishes will be followed.
