Living Will

A Living Will is a relatively well known and simple document that states the desires of the person signing it. The Living Will usually says that the signer shall not be kept alive by artificial means. Basically, a Living Will states that you should “feed me”, “water me” and then “unplug me” if I have a terminal condition from which I am not expected to survive. Living Wills can be modified to withhold food and water. According to a previous study, individuals who go into the hospital for their final stay with a Living Will, on the average, have a hospital bill 30% lower than those who die without a Living Will.
