Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Decisions

Recently a patron asked for a sample living will form. It took me a while to find one (PDF), so I am posting a link here for others who are interested.

The Nevada Center for Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Nevada Reno hosts NVLivingWill.com. The Forms/Downloads section includes a form and planning documents (in English, Spanish and a translation prepared by the Filipino Outreach Committee) as well as a link to the Nevada Secretary of State's Living Will Lockbox. For those of you who like doing things online, NVLivingWill.com also includes a free (registration required) online durable power of attorney for health care generator.

For more information on living wills, the ABA Commission on Law and Aging prepared a Consumer's Tool Kit for Health Care Advance Planning.
