Living Wills

A living will is a formal document which sets out your wishes in advance of what kind of medical treatment you would like and what medical care you would refuse should you be unable to communicate at the time.

Living wills can be tailored to specific medical treatments which they may or may not wish to have, for example, artificial breathing or feeding. They are however, limited to only your medical treatment – it does not deal with your property or funeral requests, which are dealt with by way of a Will.

Living Wills are commonly made by people with a terminal illness, but can be made by any adult at any stage of life, provided that they have mental capacity at the time the document is signed.
You are able to set up a living Will regardless of whether you are in long-term care or living independently and it gives you the ability to appoint a relative or friend who can make vital decisions regarding your treatment should the need arise.
