A LIVING WILL is a legal document that allows you to make medical decisions ahead of time. These decisions normally pertain to end-of-life medical treatment. The living will outlines the procedures or medications you want, or don’t want, to extend your life if you’re unable to communicate with the doctors yourself.
You will be able to download this Living Will PDF document immediately. Some of the fields are not “fillable” because they require a date, signature, or other information that must be hand written.
If you’re not familiar with fillable PDFs, the first time can be rather daunting. Here are a few tips for using the forms:
- Use a laptop or computer. The forms are rather difficult to navigate on a mobile device, especially a phone.
- To use a fillable PDF on a mobile device or phone, you must have a PDF reader installed on the device.
- Use the keyboard’s Tab key to move from one field to the next. You can also move the mouse and click inside the next field.
- If you’re not sure which information goes into a field, hover your mouse over the field. A tooltip will display the type of information that is required.
