A Living Will is also known as a directive to physicians. A Living Will is not a part of a Will. It is a separate document that lets family members know what type of care you do or do not want to receive should you become unable to make rational decisions due to incapacity. In addition to a Living Will, you can also establish a health care power of attorney. A health care power of attorney allows you to designate someone to make health care decisions for you and consent to the withdrawal of life-sustaining procedures on your behalf.
A Living Will is ever more important in this day of advanced medical technology. A typical Living Will states that if your life is being sustained solely by artificial means, it is your desire that these means be terminated where there is very little chance of recovery. You must make this declaration while you are still competent.
