A living will is an advance

directive for health care

This type of will has nothing to do with the transfer of financial assets

Life Support

People can sometimes be kept alive through

the utilization of artificial life-support measures

This can be true even when

the patient is terminal and there

is no hope of recovery

Stating Your Preferences

With a living will you state your preferences regarding the use of life-support measures

When you have this advance directive in place, doctors will act in accordance with your wishes

Personal Control

The question of whether or not

you would want to be kept alive

via the use of life-sustaining measures is a personal one

This is not a decision that should be left in the hands of someone else

You should certainly take

this into account when you are

planning your estate

If not, action is required
