Living Wills (Advance Directives)

If you were to be involved in an accident, or be taken seriously ill, and become unable to communicate, how would you prefer your medical treatment to be handled?

A Living Will is a document that allows you to express your decisions about future medical decisions in advance. For instance, it can specify that you would prefer to refuse resuscitation, or alternatively, clarify that you would prefer to attempt any treatment options that are available.

Having your preferences specified in advance of illness, or in case of accident, protects your loved ones from being forced to make difficult decisions about your medical care.
