A Living will or advanced directive gives you the opportunity to communicate your wishes in what medical treatment you would like to receive, or to refuse in the event that you are unable to express those wishes yourself.
These documents are usually prepared in preparation for the end of life stages, whether you are of an age where they may become relevant or if you are facing a potentially terminal illness.
They are often used in conjunction with an enduring power of attorney for personal care and welfare – providing further guidance for your attorney and for your doctors. Your power of attorney cannot request the refusal of life saving treatment on your behalf, but an advanced directive can.
