End of Life Directives

Lifesaving Information For Emergencies (LIFE) & End of Life Directives (POLST)

We are happy to provide free LIFE medical form packets to Orcas Island residents.

  • In the event of an emergency, the LIFE form provides vital information when it’s needed most.
  • Complete the LIFE form, insert it in the provided envelope, and place in a highly visible location, such as the side of your refrigerator or in the medicine cabinet.
  • Orcas Island medical service personnel who respond to your emergency will utilize the information to provide the best quality care.
  • You may also use the Physicians Order for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) form or other types of advanced directives. More information is available at POLST.org.
