How To Create a Living Will in Alaska Easily
Clearly stating your wishes about medical treatments before you can no longer communicate them due to an illness is paramount. You can achieve this by creating a legal document that can give you peace of mind and help your loved ones respect your wishes.
DoNotPay can provide you with all the necessary information about a living will in Alaska and create one for you in a flash.
A living will contains instructions for health care in specific medical situations. You may state your wishes regarding the provision of:
- Treatments to keep you alive
- Artificial hydration and nutrition
- Pain relief medication
The instructions you provide in the living will can only be extended as far as allowed by law. You cannot authorize euthanasia, assisted suicide, or mercy killing. You can download one of the living will forms you might come across online, but those are often incomplete. A lawyer could draft this document for you, but it might cost you an arm and a leg.
Since a living will in Alaska is a part of a larger legal document called advance health care directive, there is a better solution—DoNotPay!
Check out why you need this document and what other sections it includes.
|A durable power of attorney for health care||
|Anatomical gift at death||Allows you to express an intention to make an anatomical gift|
|Primary physician||Lets you appoint a doctor to have primary responsibility for your health care|
Your advance health care directive goes into effect when your physician comes to a conclusion that you cannot speak for yourself any longer.
Your health care agent needs to be older than 18 and a reliable individual. This is usually a family member or a close friend. In Alaska, you cannot have the owner, operator, or another employee of a health care institution be your agent (unless they are related to you).
You decide the limits of powers your health care agent will have. If you decide to trust them completely and set no limits to their powers, they will be able to:
- Choose or discharge health care providers and institutions
- Consent or refuse any care, service, treatment, or procedure
- Approve, withhold, or withdraw artificial nutrition and hydration and all other forms of health care
- Agree to or refuse proposed diagnostic tests or surgical procedures
- Make an anatomical gift following your death
You have three options when it comes to creating an advance directive:
- Doing it yourself
- Hiring a lawyer
- Using DoNotPay
You should not attempt making this legal document if you lack sufficient knowledge, and online forms won’t be of much help. If you hire a lawyer, you will waste a small fortune on their fees. The best solution is to turn to DoNotPay for help.
