Why You Need a Living Will

Why You Need a Living Will

A Living Will can also be called an Advance Health Care Directive. It is a legal document instructing what actions should be taken if you are unable to make decisions due to illness or incapacity. Medical intervention can unnecessarily prolong life, pain, expenses and emotional stress for patients and family members. You can reduce this stress by planning well.

A living will be very specific or very general. You can express desires regarding pain relief, antibiotics, hydration, feeding, and the use of ventilators or cardiopulmonary resuscitation. A recent version called a Medical Directive presents various scenarios for you to choose from. The forms and procedures can vary by state and country. Health Care Directives are often combined with a Durable Power of Attorney. Regardless of your current health or finances, it's important to plan for your long term health care with a Living Will.
