Ohio Living Will (Declaration)

Last Updated: 11/23/2015

Document Description

Each one of us will be required to make an important health care decision at some point in our life. In this situation, we must provide consent to our doctors, allowing them to treat us as per our wishes. But what happens in a situation where we are unable to speak for ourselves?

A living will can speak for us when we are not able to. Also called an advance health directive, a living will is a legally binding document. It provides guidance for our medical professionals and loved ones by explaining our wishes about different treatments and medical procedures. It is used only when we are in facing a serious or terminal condition and cannot speak for ourselves.

If you would like to be in charge of your own health care decisions, complete our living will form. Our form is written exclusively for residents of Ohio, as it follows Ohio state laws and regulations. Once completed, signed, dated and witnessed, your living will becomes a legal document.

For safekeeping, you can upload your living will to your ezEstatePlanner Vault. This online feature allows for secure storage of your document. It also lets you name another person who may access your living will in case of accident or illness.

You can upload all of your personal health and estate planning documents in your ezEstatePlanner Vault. For more information on different legal documents you should consider, please see each of our categories, including Wills/Inheritance, Health Planning, Power of Attorney Forms, and Executor/Trustee Forms.

Advanced preparation of your health care can help ease stress and worry for both you and your family members. End-of-life decisions are very difficult to make, but by having a living will, you can take charge and make your own choices instead of leaving the responsibility to your loved ones.
