What is a Living Will?

A Living Will, also known as an Advance Directive for Healthcare, or Healthcare Directive in some states, is a document that defines acceptable measures for saving or prolonging a patient's life by medical staff or first-responders. It also includes statements about pain-management and comfort measures that are desirable or allowable.

What is in a Living Will?

Usually, an Advance Directive consists of several sections: an Introduction with the description of what this record is, a Living Will (the main part), naming Health Proxies, Confirmation, Signature, Witnesses, Record of copies. In the main section, you need to decide whether you want life-sustaining procedures in a vegetative state, life-prolonging care conditions, medical research, or donation of your organs. If you have special requests for certain situations, you can include them in this document.

How to draft a Living Will Form?

Before starting, the person writing the Living Will must make some decisions about their preferred end-of-life measures for cases of terminal illness or injury, permanent unconsciousness, or need for life support. After that, they need to use templates to make the process of creating a Living Will or Health Care Directive easier, find witnesses to confirm that they’re of sound mind, and make a list of people who should get copies of the executed file. Prepare your own legally-binding Health Care Directive in a matter of minutes by adding your data after completing a simple questionnaire with US Legal Forms.
