After signing an Advance Directive, to whom should I give copies?

You should consider making copies of your Advance Directive for your personal records, your family, your phy­sician, your attorney, your health care proxy and alternate health care proxy. Have additional copies ready to take with you when you require hospitalization or other care as your health care providers will need a copy for your medical record. You should keep a list of persons to whom you have given a copy of your Advance Directive so that if you later change it or revoke it, you may collect the copies.
