"Your health care agent-or agent, for short - will have the authority to make life and death decisions for you according to your wishes. Make sure that the person you pick is willing to be your agent."

This guide, with an easy to use legal form for all adults, is prepared by the American Bar Association. It is a simple version of a Health Care Advance Directive, which allows you to choose someone to make health care decisions for you if you can't.
