Washington Living Will (HealthCare Directive)

Last Updated: 11/23/2015

Document Description

The Washington Advance Health Directive, also referred to as a living will, is a medical form you fill out to list your preferences for the specific medical care you would or would not like provided to you.

You don’t know what will happen down the road, so preparing can help with the inevitable. Whether you lead a healthy life or struggle with sickness, creating an advance health directive well ahead of time is highly recommended. Advance health directives aren’t only used if you are dying of old age, however. They can also be used if you are seriously injured, so it’s a good idea for anyone, regardless of age, to create one.

If you have a terminal condition, you can indicate whether you would like life-sustaining procedures to prolong your life. This option is also available if you are in a persistent vegetative state. Deciding between home, hospice, or hospital care is another one of the many choices you have to make, as is the use of feeding tubes. It is highly imperative to create this form while of sound mind, because preparing it ahead of time can significantly alter the atmosphere of your last days.

After you make your end-of-life decisions and fill out your Washington Living Will, it is important to look it over carefully. You may wish to attach your organ donation statement to the document as well. Once the document is prepared, it will need signatures from you (the principal) and two witnesses.
