Make your Living Will Today! A living will is a document that allows you to specify what should be done about life-sustaining procedures if, in the future, your death from a terminal condition is imminent despite the application of life-sustaining procedures or you are in a persistent vegetative state.
Living Wills - Advance Health Care Directives
» This Advance Directive allows you to make important decisions about your health care in the event you become incapable of voicing your desires as to treatment. It includes the ability to appoint a health care representative and to make specific instructions as to treatment or procedures.
Request for Medication to End Life in Humane and Dignified Manner - Statutory Form
» This Request form allows you to ask that medication be prescribed to end your life in a dignified and humane manner when it was been determined that your condition is terminal.
Declaration for Mental Health Treatment
» This Declaration allows you to choose a representative to speak for you with regard to mental health treatment, and to make specific instructions about mental health care when you are no longer capable of making these desires known.
Although the term Living Will may indicate that it is a Will, in reality, it is more similar to a Power of Attorney than a Will. Therefore, don't be confused by the title of the document. The purpose of a living will is to allow you to make decisions about life support and directs others to implement your desires in that regard.
Some States use documents with other names which serve the same function as a Living Will.
Q: If I make a living will, does that assure that the Courts will not get involved and that family members will not be allowed to fight over the decision I make in the Living Will about whether I desire to continue life support?
A: No, but it changes the facts and reduces the chances that your wishes would not be followed. Family members could still dispute the medical opinions that you will not recover.
