What is the Difference Between a Living Will and a Last Will?
Many of our clients come to us with questions about a living will and a last will and how they differ.
Living Will: These wills (also known as advanced healthcare directives) can go into effect while you’re still alive but have suffered a serious medical condition or injury that has left you incapacitated and unable to make or voice directives about your care.
Last Will and Testament: On the other hand, a Last Will and Testament legally outline how your estate and assets will be distributed in the event of your death. These do not go into effect until you have passed away.
What is a Living Will Lawyer?
In the unfortunate event you were to experience a debilitating illness or injury and you were unable to make or express your wishes regarding your health care, a living will can give your loved ones and your caregivers the clarity and guidance they need to move forward with your care.
For example, a living will can answer questions like:
- Would you like doctors to prolong your life if there is no chance of recovery beyond a vegetative state?
- How long would you want to stay on life support?
- Do you approve of drastic life-saving measures?
