Kentucky Living Will: What Is It?

A Kentucky living will is known as an advance directive. It is used to instruct others on how you want your medical care handled if you are unable to make your own decisions. A Kentucky living will is additionally used to name a surrogate to make your decisions on your behalf. Under state law, your surrogate cannot be an owner, operator, or employee of a healthcare facility where you are a resident or a patient (unless they are related to you more closely than first cousins once removed or if they are a member of your religion). A Kentucky living will can either be notarized or witnessed by two people.

Kentucky Living Wills Law?

§ 311.623: Living wills in Kentucky may name a main surrogate and a successor who will take the place of the surrogate if it becomes necessary. Two main surrogates may be named, but they must provide unanimous consent for all decisions.

The purpose of a living will is to document how you want medical decisions made on your behalf if you can no longer make those decisions. You can use a Kentucky last will and testament to explain how you want your affairs handled at the end of your life.
