Living Will

A living will, also called an advanced directive, is a legal document which details your wishes regarding medical treatment when you are in a terminal condition or in a state of permanent unconsciousness, including persistent vegetative state or irreversible coma. A living will gives you the right to determine which treatments, such as cardiac resuscitation and antibiotics, and you choose to accept or decline them.

A living will also gives a you the power to designate a surrogate to make medical decisions on your behalf.

If you create a living will, make sure that you give a copy to your doctors. It is also best to express your wishes to your family members.
