In a living will, you can declare your specific wishes on medical care in the event that you become incapacitated. Since the decision to receive life prolonging treatment is often very personal, it can be helpful to map this out ahead of time for your loved ones.
For example, you can specify whether or not you would like to receive:
This legal document will not become effective unless you are incapacitated. At time of incapacitation, the person you placed in control of your health care will carry out your preferences as directed in your living will. This is another important aspect of your estate plan that you must designate through a durable power of attorney for health care. This document allows you to name the individual(s) you would like to direct your care if you are no longer able to. Together, a living will and power of attorney are often referred to as an advance health care directive, as they completely cover you in regards to medical treatment.
