Estate Planning for Living Will / Health Care Directives

Idaho Attorneys Helping You With Your Living Will / Health Care Directive

Estate Planning Lawyers in Idaho for Living Will/Health Care DirectivesA Living Will, also called a health care directive or advanced directive, isn’t really a Will at all. It has nothing to do with your property or heirs. Rather, a living will is a formal document that lets people state their wishes for end-of-life medical care, in case they become unable to communicate their decisions. It has no power after death.

The classic examples where a health care directive would be needed are when a person is in a coma or is unconscious, and the doctors all agree that the only thing keeping the person alive are the machines the person is hooked up to. In this instance, the doctors are required to consult with the family, who then have the burden of deciding whether to turn the machines off.

With a proper Living Will, you take this decision off of the shoulders of your family and loved ones. You get to declare in your Living Will, while you are healthy and fine, what your end of life wishes are. Every person should have a Living Will.
