Living Wills

As competent adults, we have the right to make decisions in advance, as to whether or not we would like to decline life support when it is clear that death is imminent or a state of coma becomes permanent. Today, life support systems can keep an individual’s body alive for years, even if the brain is no longer functioning or the person is in constant pain.

A living will is a document that lets you decide whether to be kept on artificial life support. Often, these documents also appoint someone to make important health care decisions on your behalf in case you are unable to do so.
