Arizona Living Will (Advance Health Directive)

Last Updated: 11/23/2015

Document Description

While everyone hopes to be prepared for life circumstances, particularly when it comes to health, there are times when unforeseen circumstances arise. The added stress of trying to make difficult, yet crucial, decisions regarding future medical treatment can make these situations all the more burdensome. The solution would be to address these circumstances as a prior preparation and that is what the Arizona Living Will accomplishes.

A Living Will, sometimes referred to as an Advance Health Directive, enables you to make pivotal decisions regarding plans for your medical treatment. This document allows you to be in control of your health in the event that you are unable to communicate your wishes for your future or for the treatment administered due to serious illness or a being in a vegetative state.

This legal paper thoroughly details various aspects of your plans for medical treatment such as which life-sustaining treatments you would prefer and whether you want to use feeding tubes or not. The Arizona Living Will also address the setting for your care and gives you the option of being cared for where you are most comfortable; whether in your home, in a hospital, or if required, in hospice care. Preparing the Living Will is designed to give you the peace of mind of knowing that your wishes for treatment have been made known in a legally binding written form, and will alleviate the additional stress of your family having to make these crucial decisions on their own.

Additionally, you have the option of uploading your signed Arizona Living Will to your Estate Vault for easy access. You can also upload your executed living trust or will, and any other estate planning document for the convenience of having all of your information in a safe and secure location. You, as well as the loved ones you choose, can access the Estate Vault at any time.

Note: An advance health directive (or living will) is not a health care power of attorney, or a living trust. For more information, please review those documents separately, or review our article What’s the Difference Between an Advance Health Directive and a Health Care Power of Attorney?
