Make Your Decisions Official
The best way to ensure healthcare decisions will be honored during a medical emergency is to complete a living will. A living will is a legal written or verbal statement that instructs the kind of medical treatment you do or do not want, if you are too hurt or sick to speak for yourself and unexpected to recover. It is only applied when you have reached the end stage of an illness or condition and the procedures would only prolong your natural dying. You can revise or revoke your living will at any time.
