By asking witnesses to sign your Myend documents you are asking them to confirm that these documents are actually yours. More importantly, with your witness’ signature you make it clear to everyone else too that these are indeed your wishes. In other words, a witness’ signature is a testament that these wishes and instructions are indeed yours.
Myend Documents include your Advance Care Plan, Funeral Plan, Organ Donation and Euthanasia Plan. For such non-legally binding documents, your options are quite broad. It could be a relative that witnesses it, a medical professional or a close friend. It’s advisable that your witness is not the same person as the designated decision-maker or beneficiary.
