Living Will

Updated for 2014

A Living Will allows you to specify the end-of-life medical treatments that you would like to receive (or not receive) if you are suffering from a terminal illness or if you are in a permanent state of unconsciousness and unable to communicate your wishes.

A living will allows you to:

  • – specify your preferences for end-of-life treatments;
  • – avoid unwanted medical procedures;
  • – avoid family disputes regarding your medical care;
  • – reduce healthcare costs; and
  • – more.

Further details are set out below.

A living will is used to let your attending medical team know what life saving treatments you would like applied or withheld during any period in which you are suffering from a terminal illness or in a permanent state of unconsciousness and unable to communicate your instructions.

While the legal status of living wills is somewhat unclear in Ireland, most prudent solicitors are preparing living wills on behalf of their clients in the expectation that Ireland, like the UK and US, will soon introduce legislation to officially recognise their status and importance. In fact, the Irish Government recently issued a sample living will for the purposes of (amongst other things) soliciting comments from solicitors and medical advisors in relation to the use of living wills in Ireland and the possible format it should take.

Enodare’s Living Will form comes in a format which closely resembles those used in the UK and US as well as the sample living will produced by the Irish government. It is likely that any form officially approved in Ireland will closely resemble these forms. Also, like most other legal forms, there will be a large amount of discretion given to those preparing these documents in order to ensure that they properly reflect their wishes. As such, the format is unlikely to be in a fixed format and, as a result, and while it is not yet certain, the use of the forms available from Enodare.ie should be legally enforceable. If not, then they will act as an important guide to your medical team and family who can make decisions with full knowledge of your views on the subject.

A living will is clearly something that is better to have and not need; that to need and not have!!!

This Living Will form is a downloadable form. It comes complete with guidance notes and instructions on how to complete the form.
