What Is a Living Will?
No one knows when tragedy will strike, and having a living will is a way to communicate your wishes if you are near death, severely incapacitated, or in a permanent coma.
Also known as a Health Care Directive or a Power of Attorney for Health, a living will is a written notice that states your desires for medical treatment such as providing or withholding life-support in the event of a serious accident or illness.
The Importance of a Living Will
The medical treatment you wish to receive in the event of a catastrophe is one of the most important and personal decisions you can make, but if you lack a living will and are in a persistent vegetative state, the burden of those decisions may be left to others like family members or even the court.
Certain medical treatments and forms of life-support, furthermore, can create enormous expenses for your next-of-kin or even violate your personal and religious beliefs.
Having a living will in place is essential for making your desires clear in case you are one day incapable of expressing them yourself.
