A Healthcare Directive, often referred to as a Medical Directive or a Living Will, is a legal document that specifies your healthcare and medical wishes in the event you suddenly end up in a situation where you cannot actively make those decisions for yourself. This document will give directions for the types of medical treatments you want to receive if you become terminally ill or are involved in a bad accident that leaves you in a coma. When you cannot make decisions for yourself, medical professionals will refer to this document for how to proceed.
A Healthcare Directive is a document everyone should have in place because you never know what is going to happen in life and it is important that your wishes are known. By having this document in place, you take the burden of making those big-time decisions off your family.
