If you’re ready to put your wishes into writing, there are a number of formats you can choose from to help you translate your future care preferences into a legally valid document.

In most cases in Virginia, you simply need a signed document that outlines your preferences and is witnessed by two individuals. You can complete an advance medical directive on your own, work with an attorney or your health care provider, or collaborate with a certified advance care planning facilitator.

At Honoring Choices® Virginia, we use a form known as the “Virginia statutory form.” This document was created by the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association and the Virginia State Bar, and is therefore easily recognized by emergency providers as a legally valid document.
