A Health Care Proxy, which is one of the major components of an Advance Directive, is the primary decision maker when an incompetent patient is facing life and death circumstances. They make tough choices concerning treatment options, insurance benefits, and life support.

Being a Proxy is a huge responsibility and can also be an incredible burden. Take this quiz to find out if you’re up to the task.

According to the American Bar Association’s Commission on Law & Aging, less than one-third of the adult population has a Living Will or other Advance Directive. It’s time to change this sad statistic, so follow these steps:
