Kentucky Living Will Directive

The Kentucky Living Will Directive (Medical POA) empowers an individual (termed the Grantor) with the means to ensure their own health decisions will be respected in the event of their incapacity. It must be drafted and executed by the Grantor—to the exclusion of all others—when they are in a competent state. The Grantor must name the person (termed the Health Care Surrogate) they wish to carry out such decisions. Examples of decisions include their choices about dying naturally versus accessing life-prolonging treatments.
