North Carolina Living Will (Advance Directive)

Last Updated: 11/23/2015

Document Description

No one likes to think about their health changing or declining with age. Good health is a gift, one we must continue to take care of well into our old age.

One of the most difficult subjects to reflect on is our future health care and what happens when we are no longer able to look after ourselves. Should something serious happen to us, what kind of care do we want to receive? Do we want to be treated in a hospital, hospice or at home, if that’s an option? If terminally ill and in a vegetative state, do we want to be kept alive on life support? How do we feel about treatments that only extend our lives without curing our condition?

These important questions can all be addressed with an advance health directive. Also called a living will, this legal document clearly lists to which treatments we do and don’t agree. We can make important decisions about our own health care In advance. We can have the peace of mind that our care has been planned, removing the responsibility from our loved ones.

Our advance health directive is specifically written for the state of North Carolina. It uses the correct legal terms and follows all North Carolina laws, making it a legally binding document. An advance health directive can be revoked or changed at any time, if you are still deemed of sound mind.
