The living will in Aragón is called an advance directive document

The living will in Aragón is a document that contains the decisions expressed by a person, taken in a thoughtful, free and responsible way, about medical treatments and taking care of your health or, upon death, on the fate of your body or organs. This document serves so that in the event of physical or mental deterioration, a person who is unable to express her will, the health personnel involved in her care can know the will previously expressed so that they respect and comply with it.

In Aragón the living will can be done by anyone over 18 years old and who has the ability to act after a period of reflection where they can assess their life goals with loved ones, such as family and friends, and also with medical personnel. It is also possible that a person over 14 years old can process their living will, as long as they are assisted by their father, mother or legal guardian .

This document can be created by completing an available template, in paper or digital format. According to the regulations, the presence of two witnesses of legal age is required, of which at least one of them must not be related to the second degree or be related by property to the person to make a living will. This document can also be created in a notary, in which case witnesses are not necessary.

Sometimes, a representative is usually appointed who will be responsible for ensuring that the wishes reflected in the living will are fulfilled and respected at all times. If there are doubts about interpretation, the representative will be the valid interlocutor between the patient and the medical team and will make decisions on behalf of the patient, taking into account the patient’s values, instructions and wishes. Health professionals, when the circumstances arise, should consult the Registry of Advance Directives to find out if the patient has recorded their advance directives. The representative must accept her position by also signing the living will document.

In order to process the living will in Aragón it is necessary to provide the following documentation:

  • DNI, NIE or Passport.
  • The living will or advance directive document duly completed and signed.
  • The original DNs, NIEs or Passports of the witnesses and / or representative, or a certified copy of them.
