How regularly should I review my advance directive(s)?

We recommend reviewing your directives every decade, after a major life event (children, divorce, death, etc.), or after a new diagnosis or change in an illness. Remember that you can also always change your directives if you would like to appoint a different health care agent or if your views have changed regarding your treatment preferences or goals.
