A living Will is a written instruction that details a person’s wishes about future medical treatment in circumstances where he/she isn’t able to make informed decisions and give his/her consent.

It is important to know that this document can’t bind your doctor or a medical facility to adhere to your wishes. Your doctor will always have the final decision with regards to the medical action to be taken.

The value of a living will lies in the fact that it speaks for you when you cannot speak for yourself and gives your loved ones guidance and peace of mind when making difficult decisions on your behalf, in circumstances where you are unable to do so.

Plan for the unknown: contact a professional for assistance.
