The Florida advance directive form allows a person to prepare for their possible physical or mental incapacity by appointing a health care surrogate and making a living will. The surrogate is a trusted individual who is given the authority to make decisions regarding the principal’s health care if they are incapacitated. A living will portion of the document provides the principal’s instructions for when they wish to have life-sustaining treatments withheld. The completed form should be given to the principal’s acting physician or care facility to have it entered into their medical record.
