Health Care Directive

وَمَا تَدْرِي نَفْسٌ بِأَيِّ أَرْضٍ تَمُوتُ

سورة لقمان، آية ٣٤

Health Care Directive

A Health Care Directive (also known as “Health Care Proxy” or “Living Will”) is a legal document that contains your health care wishes and allows you to appoint a person to make health care decisions on your behalf.

Without a Living Will, you have no control over your healthcare should you have a life-threatening condition that does not allow you to communicate. Your desires and adherence to your religious tradition would be unknown, and you will burden your family with stressful guesswork during a time fraught with emotions. And it is not unusual for family members to disagree and fight about these medically sensitive emotional issues.

Without a Living Will:

  • Doctors and the state have the power to decide how long to keep you on artificial life support OR whether to perform resuscitation.
  • While your family is fighting, you could be kept on artificial life support, with no hope of recovery.
