The Commonwealth of Virginia is offering a statewide Advance Health Care Directive Registry. The registry, available to all legal Virgnia residents, stores documents that detail and protect health care wishes in the event people are unable tos peak for themselves. These documents include medical power of attorney, do-not-resuscitate orders, and other health care wishes.
To sign up for the health care registry, visit https://www.virginiaregistry.org. People without access to a computer can still be a part of the registry by calling: 1-800-224-0791.
