What are your final wishes?

Posted: Updated:

Most people have clear ideas of their end-of-life preferences.  But does your family or your physician know?

The Washington State Living Will Registry is a secure, online database that preserves Washington State residents' end-of-life preferences.  The registry is available to authorized health care providers only and contains vital information when a person is unable to communicate or make decisions about end-of-life treatment. 

The Washington State Living Will Registry includes:
Health Care Directive
Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care
Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment
Mental Health Advance Directive

Registration is easy and free.  You will receive a unique registration number.  Authorized health care personnel can access your living will with your registration number or with your name and date of birth.  Talk with your family today about The Washington State Living Will Registry and your decision to document your end-of-life treatment preferences. 

Online at www.doh.wa.gov/livingwill or call today 1-800-525-0127
