Living Will

What is Living Will?

living A Living Will gives your healthcare providers your treatment choices in the event you suffer a terminal condition, an irreversible end-stage condition, or are in a persistent vegetative state caused by injury, disease, or illness from which there is no “reasonable medical probability” of recovery and which can be expected to cause your death if not treated. A Living Will is your directions to your caregivers on whether life-prolonging procedures be withheld or withdrawn when the application of those procedures would serve only to artificially prolong the process of dying; A Living Will expresses your choice to be permitted to die naturally with only the administration of medication or the performance of any medical procedure deemed necessary to provide you with comfort, care or to alleviate pain.
