What is a Living Will?
A Living Will is a document in which you set forth the type medical treatment which should be provided to you when you are not able to provide those instructions because of a severe injury or other incapacitating condition.
A Living Will is ordinarily used to describe the type of treatment you want to receive when you are suffering from an injury or illness which might ultimately result in your death. For example, if you are in a coma or suffering from any other condition which results in permanent or an indeterminable period of unconsciousness, you might choose not to receive medical treatment which will prolong your life, but from which you have no realistic chance of "recovering" in a way which is meaningful to you.
You can also express your wishes regarding "palliative" care. Palliative care ensures you will be treated with medication or other care to reduce pain at the time of your passing.
After you have decided what choices you want to make in your Living Will, we recommend that you provide a copy to your spouse, children or other close relations or friends who may be with you at this time.
