Reasons you should have an advance healthcare directive
aka living will, advance health care directive, advance directive
An advance health care directive is a legal document that communicates your end-of-life decisions and healthcare wishes if you are incapacitated and/or unable to do so yourself. Under Utah law, an advance health care directive consists of two parts: a living will and health care power of attorney.
A living will allows you to specify your end-of-life-decisions, such as treatment options and procedures to keep you alive, pain management, artificial life support, organ donation, CPR and resuscitation, feeding-tubes, dialysis, and others. A health care power of attorney allows you to name a Health Care Agent to make decisions for you if you are incapacitated.
With an advance healthcare directive you can rest assured that your own choices will be protected in the event of a disability, incapacitation, coma, or other serious medical situation.

Who should have an advance directive?
All adults should be prepared for unexpected events and end-of-life decisions. You never know when you could be seriously injured or incapacitated. Thus, an advance directive is an important part of a complete estate plan.
An advance healthcare directive will help guide doctors and caregivers in the event of a serious injury, a coma, terminal illness, or other major medical situation.
A Health Care Agent will ensure that your healthcare wishes are carried out.
What happens if you die without a healthcare directive?
Utah laws will determine who will make your healthcare decisions or a judge might designate someone to do so. However, that person might not fully understand your wishes and end-of-life wishes.
When to use an advance directive:
- To specify your end-of-life decisions and healthcare wishes
- To name someone to direct your healthcare if you are unable
- If you are facing a possible surgery or hospitalization
- If you’ve been diagnosed with a terminal condition
