Living Will

A “living will” (also known as a “directive to physicians”) is a document that provides instructions to your attending physician to provide, withhold, or withdraw life sustaining procedures in the event of a terminal or irreversible condition. The living will also allow you to specify the types of treatment, like artificial hydration and nutrition, that you would like to have provided or withheld.

A living will should not be confused with a living trust. It is a legal document that expresses the wishes of one with regard to the use of life-sustaining treatment in the event that one becomes terminally ill. Many people do not want to be placed on life support if doing so offers no real hope of improving their situation and only prolongs the event of their death. Many hospitals provide this form to clients when they are hospitalized.

If you believe that a living will is a suitable option for your estate plan, please contact The Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC today.
