A Living Will, sometimes referred to as a “Health Care Directive”, “Advance Directive for Health Care” or “End of Life Directive." A Living Will is a document that tells your doctor how you want to be treated if you are terminally ill or permanently unconscious. The Living Will directs your doctor to avoid life-prolonging interventions if you are in an incurable condition, or you’re near death such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), use of a feeding tube, kidney dialysis or breathing machines. You can use the Living Will to tell your doctor you just want to be pain free and comfortable at the end of your life. You may also add other special instructions or limitations in your Living Will.
Your Living Will takes effect only when you become incapacitated, cannot speak for yourself, and there’s no hope for your recovery.
In a Living Will, you can advise all parties concerned whether you wish medical professionals to withhold or withdraw life-sustaining procedures or food and water – if you are in an incurable condition, or you’re near death.
A Living Will, allows you to state in writing your preferences about life-prolonging medical treatment, taking this burden away from family members who often are not emotionally able to make such life and death decisions. We at Eskridge & Eskridge can explain in detail the purpose of this document. “We'll Take Care Of You.”
