Pennsylvania living will is a legal document that states the health care treatments a patient (the “principal”) wishes to receive upon losing their ability to communicate. The terms of the form are related to end-of-life care, life-sustaining procedures, and organ donation. The principal will outline their health care decisions in Part 2 of the document linked on this page. If the principal would also like to designate a medical decision maker, or “health care agent,” they may do so by completing the Medical Power of Attorney form found in Part 1 of this document. Completing both parts of the form creates an Advance Directive for the principal.
