A living will is a legally binding document that allows you to leave instructions for how you would like to be treated if you are no longer able to speak for yourself. It also includes basic instructions on what you would like to happen if you die.
Having such a document can really save your loved ones a lot of pain, as they will know exactly what you want, and not have to make these tough decisions for you if the need arises.
As we shared with you some weeks ago, Spain has now approved euthanasia, but if you are not considered to have your full mental capacity at the time of the request, you will have had to have included this in your living will.
On this post you can download instructions on how to fill in and register your living will as well as all the forms you will need to do so.

NOTE 26/10/2021 Due to a back log from having had to close during lockdown it is very hard to get an appointment at the moment, if you call you will be placed on a waiting list and called with an appointment in some months. So until further notice, if you want to register your living will soon it is best to do this through a notary. However, the office has informed us that if someone has to register a living will as a matter of urgency due to a terminal illness, they will do what they can to give this person an appointment. Please contact us for more details.
