What is a Living Will?
A living will is also known as an Advance Healthcare Directive, Advance Directive or Medical Directive. The purpose of a living will is to inform people of your wishes in case you are no longer able to communicate them. This end-of-life medical care document can ensure that you receive the medical treatment you desire when faced with life-threatening issues.
Only certain events can trigger a living will — such being put on life support, entering a coma or a vegetative state. Living
The more specific the living will, the better and easier it is for your family and care providers to make good decisions, and the more likely you are to have your final wishes met.
Who should have a Living Will?
Everyone. You never know when a tragedy or accident can strike, and we’ve never heard of anyone regretting taking the time for end-of-life planning and making personal healthcare directives. Being prepared can ease the burden on your family during a stressful stage of life. Don’t wait for declining health to kickstart your end-of-life planning.
