What is a Living Will?

A living will is the legal document where you declare your wishes concerning the end of your life.  In the final stages of your life, you can indicate your desire concerning artificial life support, treatment or the termination of treatment.  The document indicates your decision on DNR orders, the removal of feeding tubes, and the removal of hydration.  This document gives instructions to your family, your doctors, and your health care agent concerning the end of your life.
