Living Will

This part of the Advance Directive allows you to specify which kinds of treatment and care you desire if you are unable to speak for yourself.

A living will allows you to express your wishes about any aspect of your health care, including decisions regarding life-sustaining treatments.  Remember, it can include treatments and procedures you do or do not want.  Statements regarding organ and tissue donation may also be included. The instructions provided in this portion of the form serve as evidence of the patient’s wishes.
