Living Will

An advance directive that guides your family and health care team through the medical treatment you wish to receive if you are unable to communicate your wishes. According to your state’s living will law, this document is considered legal as soon as you sign it and a witness signs it, if that is required. A living will goes into effect only when you are no longer able to make your own decisions.
