SC: Living Will

The Living Will is an advance directive that articulates one’s preferences as to certain circumstances in which they would or would not want their life prolonged. The Living Will is ONLY applicable for decisions if you are terminally ill or permanently unconscious. Without the living will, you force your family members to make very difficult decisions concerning what will or will not be done when the procedures that are proposed serve only to prolong the dying process. With a living will, a family will feel more at ease that they are following your wishes.
