My First Choice for Health Care: Advance Directive Workbook

Connecticut Legal Rights Project, Inc.

This workbook was developed by the Connecticut Legal Rights Project to help you prepare a legal document called an advance directive. An advance directive allows you to influence your health care treatment when you are unable to do so.

Assistance is available to help you understand and prepare an advance directive. Contact CT Legal Rights Project to have your questions answered by an attorney or paralegal. An Advance Directive is a legal document and it is best to obtain legal advice when completing, updating or revoking one. If you have questions about this workbook or advance directives, call CLRP at 1-877-402-2299 or go to CLRP’s website at
