Completing an advance directive (living will and/or a medical power of attorney) assures that a person’s end-of-life care wishes are honored and gives direction to the family so crisis decision-making can be avoided.
All West Virginia residents should complete the West Virginia documents and provide copies to their family, physicians and local hospital.
Hospice of the Panhandle can help by explaining your end-of-life options, answering any questions and assisting you in completing the appropriate documents. We also provide educational programs to the community about advance care planning and maintain a supply of all West Virginia advance directive documents.
Documentation is also available here:
We would be happy to speak to your church, club, or employee group free of charge.
