Living Wills are not legal documents, but they do work hand-in-hand with your Health Care Proxy. While you designate the individual you want the health care professionals to look to in the event you cannot express your own health care decisions when completing a Health Care Proxy, a Living Will is a more personal document. A Living Will allows you to tell your health care agent what your personal wishes are – especially when it comes to end of life care. Do you want to use artificial life support, hydration measures, or feeding tubes for extended periods of time? These are very personal decisions. A Living Will allows you to express your wishes now while you are still capable of communicating them to your trusted health care agent.
