Kansas Living Will (Declaration)

Last Updated: 11/23/2015

Document Description

Families make preparations for various types of circumstances in life; however, what often is not considered is the future medical treatment of a loved one. In the event of a devastating health condition, this lack of preparation can leave families with very difficult decisions to make regarding the medical care of their family members. A key to alleviating these concerns is preparation and that is where the Advance Health Directive makes all the difference.

An Advance Health Directive, also known as a living will, is a document that specifies your plan for medical care if a serious illness or persistent vegetative state prevents you from communicating your wishes. This allows you to be in control of the future of your health by specifying your plans for medical treatment in a legally binding document.

The Kansas Advance Health Directive thoroughly details various aspects of your medical treatment, such as which life-sustaining procedures you authorize and the use of a feeding tube. Further, the document gives you the opportunity to decide where you want the treatment to take place. Whether at a hospital, in hospice care, or at your home, the Advance Health Directive allows you to specify exactly where you want to be cared for.

As an added convenience, the Estate Vault is available to upload your signed Kansas Advance Health Directive, which can be easily accessed at any time. You can also upload your will, living trust, and any other estate planning documents to this secure location only to be accessed by yourself and the loved ones you select.

Note: An advance health directive (or living will) is different than health care power of attorney or a living trust for more information, review those documents individually, or review our article, The Difference Between an Advance Health Directive and a Health Care Power of Attorney?
