This Living Will Template can be used to create a living will. The living will is a legal document that tells others what your personal choices are about end-of-life medical treatment. It 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. This could be because you are unconscious from an accident or other event, in a medically-induced coma, or perhaps had a stroke or heart attack and on life support.
Living wills are different than medical power of attorney forms. A medical power of attorney appoints someone you trust to make medical decisions on your behalf, regardless of your physical or mental state. A living will is called different things from state to state. The term living will is sometimes used interchangeably with advance directive or advanced health care directive. Be sure to find out exactly which term is used in your state.
