Greater detail on advanced directives Policy/Law changes

As a caregiver and DHCPOA I would like to start a conversation and bring about policy changes to have advanced directives give greater instructions to the people who are to carry out the individuals wishes as to what to do if XYZ happens, not just, withhold nutrition and hydration if I'm terminally ill. Give deeper instructions, who do you want to provide caregiving for you if you should need it? Do you expect your family to provide that care, and if so, what arrangements have you made with them? Has your family agreed to be caregivers or is this simply an expectation that you have?
