, CA — VA Loma Linda Healthcare System is hosting an Advance Health Care Directive Fair May 4 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Ambulatory Care Center lobby.
Veterans and designated health care agents, caregivers, family members and close companions are invited to receive information, complete and update advance health care directives.
An advance directive is an official document that helps your doctors and loved ones understand your preferences for medical and mental health care. If someday you can’t make health care decisions for yourself anymore, an advance directive can help guide the people who will make decisions for you.
You can use a VA Advance Directive form to:
- Name specific people to make health care decisions for you
- Describe your preferences for how you want to be treated
- Describe your preferences for medical care, mental health care, long-term care, or other types of health
