Oklahoma Living Will (Advance Health Directive)

Last Updated: 11/23/2015

Document Description

An advance health directive is a written statement that details someone’s health care wishes. This important document is used when a person is no longer able to communicate his or her wishes due to critical illness or injury. This document is legally binding and can be brought to the attention of medical staff when health care decisions must be made.

Having an advance health directive is important because it allows you to make your own decisions and to stay in charge of your health care, even when you can no longer speak for yourself. It also removes the burden from friends and family, who would otherwise be asked to make difficult decisions for you.

Make sure your wishes are known and followed by completing an advance health directive. Sometimes called a living will, this document must be written with the correct legal terms and clauses. Our advance health directive form conforms to the laws in Oklahoma, ensuring your document will be legally binding.

Anyone of legal age can have a living will. It may be especially important for those who have no immediate family nearby, as hospital staff could be forced to make decisions for you if no one is available to act on your behalf. Those with pre-existing medical conditions also benefit from having a living will, as they can stay in the driver’s seat for their continued health care.

For easy accessibility, you can now upload your living will to the online ezEstatePlanner Vault. This secured online storage can also be used for all of your important estate documents, such as a will and a health care power of attorney.

Don’t forget to let your loved ones know about your advance health directive and where it is stored. You may choose to allow a loved one access to your ezEstatePlanner Vault so he or she doesn’t have to worry about finding your documents in a time of need.
