A living will (also called a declaration of a desire for a natural death or a directive to physicians) allows a person who is unconscious or incapacitated to express his or her desires regarding the use of extraordinary measures to extend his or her life when there is no reasonable expectation that he or she will regain consciousness.
Even if you have a legally enforceable health care proxy it is important to discuss your preferences regarding medical care and your living will with your health care proxy. The conversation will help to empower your health care agent to follow your expressed wishes as found in the living will.
Estate Planning Attorney Tobin can draft a living will based entirely on your personal wishes.
