5 Tips for Creating a Living Will Form

A living will form tells your doctor and family your requests for medical care if you are unable to communicate them yourself.

Tip #1: Understand what options are available 

A living will form tells your doctor and family your requests for medical care if you are unable to communicate them yourself. 

Tip # 2: Pick an advocate or an executioner 

The details of your living will form can be fully decided by you. You could also designate a person to make the significant decisions in case events are not covered by your own provisions. 

Tip # 3: Secure your choices

Have your family’s consent or the advice of your religious adviser when deciding which medical procedures to allow or prohibit. 

Tip # 4: Write your own living will

You can contact an attorney to write a living will or you can put one together yourself with relatively little cost

Tip # 5: Revise your living will regularly

It is important to always update your living will. There might be additional provisions and terms you want to include in it. Download a free copy of a living will.
