A living will can be a useful document for any person that is concerned about how medical care is delivered in a crisis. If you find yourself incapacitated, unconscious or in a coma, a living will (along with a power of attorney) will allow a family member to direct medical professionals according to your preferences. This can include issues like life support measures, nutrition and other measures to address your condition.
Without a living will, physicians are limited in how they can act, and will always default to conservative steps for prolonging life. Let us talk to you about how a living will can play an essential role for healthcare in your estate plan.
