Is the Health Care Proxy difficult to complete?

Fortunately, the New York State Health Care Proxy is publicly available and very easy to fill out. The form itself is only two pages long. The only required pieces of the form are the appointment of the agent, your signature, and the witness signatures. Everything else is optional, with one exception – your agent must reasonably know your wishes regarding artificial nutrition and hydration. The form contains instructions and answers to frequently asked questions. It is also available in multiple languages.
