A Vermont living will is also referred to as an advance directive. A Vermont living will is an important document. It explains your decisions related to medical care and will be consulted by healthcare professionals in the event that you are unable to make your own medical decisions at that time. A Vermont living will must be signed in front of two witnesses.
§ 18-231-9700 through § 18-231-9720: The State of Vermont allows competent adults to use an advance healthcare directive to make their healthcare wishes known as well as their wishes related to organ donation and other anatomical gifting, and their funeral or final services.
Although a living will gives patients the ability to document several end of life decisions, it’s still important to create a Vermont last will and testament.
