Living Will and Health Care Power of Attorney (WA)

This questionnaire helps you create a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care and/or Health Care Directive, for a resident of Washington.

  1. Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care: This lets you name someone to make decisions about your medical care, including decisions about life support, if you can no longer speak for yourself. This is especially useful because it appoints someone to speak for you any time you are unable to make your own medical decisions, not only at the end of life.
  2. Health Care Directive (Living Will): This lets you state your wishes about medical care if your attending physician determines that you have developed a terminal condition and can no longer make your own medical decisions. This also applies to conditions of permanent unconsciousness, like irreversible coma and persistent vegetative state, although another doctor must then agree with your attending physician's opinion.
  3. Anatomical Gift: This allows you to express your wishes about the donation of organs, tissues, and other body parts, which could be used for therapy, medical research, and education.
