You should review your Health Care Proxy periodically to ensure that the document you signed still represents your current wishes. It is easy to cancel the proxy, to change the person you have chosen as your health care agent, or to change any treatment instructions you have written on your Health Care Proxy form. All you need to do is fill out a new form, or simply state that the Health Care Proxy is revoked. You should notify your agent, your attorney, your physician or any other health care provider, your family and friends, and anyone who has a copy, verbally and in writing, of your change or revocation.
