Clarifying your health care decisions now means less worry for you and your family.
Living will definition: A living will, commonly referred to as an advance directive, is a document that provides instructions regarding end-of-life care. Living wills allow you to make your own choices about life support and helps prevent confusion about the type of care you do or do not want in the event you become incapable of communicating your wishes. Without a living will, the laws in your state will determine who will make your health care decisions.
Provide instructions about the care you do or don't want at the end of your life.
Your wishes are in writing. No one can legally override the decisions you've already made.
You can also choose someone you trust to speak for you on health care matters.
Your state's law says who'll make your health care decisions if you don't have an advance directive. If no one is designated, a judge might decide who gets to make those decisions, and that person would do so without written guidance from you.Learn more about living wills
You can choose to have your life prolonged as much as reasonably possible by procedures like tube feeding or mechanical respiration. Or you can say you don't want to be kept alive by artificial means. You also can name someone to be in charge of making sure your wishes are honored, and to make other health care decisions for you.Are there decisions that can't be made for me?
