Living Will

A Living Will is a part of your Advance Directives that documents your specific wishes regarding your health care. It’s a legal form and varies from state to state. You can fill out your Living Will at any time – it’s best to complete it early so you and your family are prepared should you become terminally ill or reach a state where you can’t communicate your decisions for yourself any longer.

Living Wills can communicate your wishes in areas such as use of:

  • Feeding and hydration
  • CPR
  • Breathing tubes
  • Dialysis
  • Pain killers
