What is a living will?
A living will is a document that was created many decades ago. To take care of a person who becomes disabled, but who has not passed away. That document is now known as a health care surrogate. Unfortunately, people still look at the health care surrogate as a living will, but it is now a new document that is much better, much more comprehensive than the prior living will. So therefore, a person who becomes disabled and who has a health care surrogate that is notarized and witnessed, will be accepted by hospitals and doctors to have one person care for another who’s been appointed.
