A Living Will under Thai Law is part of Thai Law under Statute 12 of the CCC. Basically it gives you the opportunity when you are competent enough to make some advanced planning.
There are 2 condition where it can work. 1 is where you are in a terminal phase of illness and the 2nd is where you are brain dead through injury caused by an accident, stroke, or aneurysm.
Some call the Living Will and enduring Power of Attorney (USA) however it is specific to Thailand and so called a Living Will.
Our document is on the same page English and then Thai language. We do this as some of the hospitals have 2 separate documents and so one may be changed and we think if its one the same page then it cannot be changed and the Judge and or hospital can see what the Testator wished.
There are a series of boxes to request or deny treatment and the Testator should check them off.
There is whats called a Surrogate and this is either me or a friend that is strong enough to tell the hospital to carry our your wishes.
All is signed and witnessed by 2 people.
Basically you as the Testator are telling the hospital to deny treatment to keep you allow when there is no hope.
Pain killers to make you comfortable are what most people prefer.
If you want to talk about this or get more info then email or call.
I have one as I have no intent to stay on a machine with the meter ticking over. I would rather give the money to my heirs or a charity.
