A Directive to Physicians, often called a “living will,” is an advance healthcare directive that communicates your medical wishes to your family and attending physician should you become ill with a terminal or irreversible condition.
Medical decisions are often difficult to make, especially when a family member is forced to make decisions on your behalf and without your guidance. By preparing a living Will, you are not only making sure your wishes are clear, but you are ensuring that your named agent(s) have clear directions regarding maintaining or withdrawing life support in the event you are in a terminal or irreversible condition. This document is vital to prevent confusion and disagreements within your family during a medical crisis.
