End of Life Directives

L.I.F.E. means Lifesaving Information For Emergencies.

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.
