Maine Living Will (Advance Health Directive)

Last Updated: 11/23/2015

Document Description

There is no easy way to discuss the probabilities of being ill. Although it is a sore subject, it is extremely important to have a plan. No matter what age you are, as long as you are at least 18, creating an advance health directive can make things easier for the future. The advance health directive, also known as a living will, allows you to prepare your preferences regarding different treatment decisions.

The ezEstatePlanner Maine Advance Health Directive covers all of the logistics regarding one’s health. This very important legal document allows your wishes regarding different treatments to be properly carried out by health officials. Making decisions when an advance health directive has not been created can result in confrontation and conflicting choices between family members. Hospitalization, medication and operations can involve decisions that are difficult for family members to make. Having your advance health directive created ahead of time allows you to gather all of your choices concerning your health care wishes.

While filling out the Maine Advance Health Directive, you will include your preferences about using life-sustaining procedures and whether you would like home, hospice or hospital care. The advance health directive also allows you to pick whether or not you would like percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG), also known as feeding tubes, if you become terminally ill. Choosing these options ahead of time will reduce the pandemonium if any accidents happen or you become ill.

ezEstatePlanner allows you to add this very important document to the ezEstatePlanner Vault. This vault allows you to upload your forms after you have created them for proper safekeeping and storage. You, as well as any loved ones you choose, will be able to access your forms at any time if you ever need to make changes or print additional copies.
