The Importance Of A Living Will
While you use living trusts and wills to designate the beneficiaries of your estate, you should also have a document that sets forth your wishes with respect to life support and end-of-life treatment. At Donaldson Stewart, P.C., we assist clients in Chandler, Phoenix and Maricopa County who are looking to control the manner of end-of-life care they receive.
If you are unable to communicate your wishes relating to life support, well-meaning but unwitting family members may defy your actual wishes. Forcing them into a decision of life or death for you puts them in a bad situation. Make the decision for them.
Creating Your Living Will
At Donaldson Stewart, P.C., we will help you create a living will. The document will be detailed and clear as to your wishes relating to life support and medical treatment. That includes nutrition, hydration and artificial breathing. By way of this important document, you can facilitate your manner of care even if you are unconscious.
Making Decisions Via A Living Will
Without a living will, you may be putting your family in a difficult situation. Making decisions without any clarification only adds to the grief of their loss should you pass away. A living will takes that decision-making off their shoulders. You have made the decisions and are communicating them via your living will.
