Living Wills

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

Life is fragile and unpredictable. Living wills are one way to ensure your wishes will be carried out if and when the time comes for your loved ones to make decisions on your behalf.

With medical science so advanced, it is now possible to prolong one’s life without the realistic prospect of improvement or cure. Some people wish to have their life last as long as possible, even if it means living in a compromised state, while others prefer to limit the artificial prolongation of life.

Living wills let people spell out exactly how they feel about these matters while they are healthy, so that there are no questions when it’s too late to provide answers.  Loved ones are grateful for not having to make these difficult decisions and you have peace of mind that your wishes will be honored. If you don’t yet have a living will, we suggest the following websites to learn more about them:
