An Oklahoma living will is often referred to as an advance directive for healthcare. The purpose of an Oklahoma living will is to document your wishes related to healthcare in the instance that you are not able to make your own decisions for any reason. An Oklahoma living will is also used to name a healthcare proxy. Your healthcare proxy will make medical decisions on your behalf at that time. The person you name as healthcare proxy must be at least 18 years old. An Oklahoma living will must also be signed by two witnesses. Your witnesses must be at least 18 years old; related to you by blood, marriage, or adoption; and cannot be a person who is eligible to inherit something from you when you die.
§ 63-3101.1 through § 63-3101.16: Known as the Oklahoma Advance Directive Act, Oklahoma law provides competent adults with the ability to document their end of life care decisions for future use. The Advance Directive is used if the patient becomes incapacitated.
To further document your wishes, create an Oklahoma last will and testament.
