            The concept of making a will has been around for a very long time, and it is something that everybody who has assets should do. The purpose of making a will is to have a legal document that lays out in detail how you want your assets to be distributed after you die.

            In more recent times, the concept of a living will has evolved, and this should not be confused with a standard will. A living will has nothing to do with your assets. When you make a living will, you are specifying how you want to be treated by the medical profession with regard to treatments that can prolong your life. The point of having a living will is that you may be so incapacitated that you are unable to communicate with doctors, and they should act according to the wishes you have expressed in your living will.

           Advances in medical treatments and machinery have meant that people who are in a vegetative state can be kept alive, often for many years. For example, a person involved in a serious road accident may suffer severe and irreparable brain damage that leaves him or her in a coma from which he or she is never going to recover.

             
      
The decision on whether to remove life support from such a person is down to that personís next of kin. Clearly, this places a dreadful burden on the next of kin, and it is not a decision with which most people would want to be faced.

            In some cases, the accident victim and the next of kin may have previously discussed such a scenario, and the next of kin knows what the accident victim would prefer. However, even in these cases, there may be family disputes about what should happen if the victim has not spoken to other family members about his or her wishes. This can lead to a lot of distress for all the people concerned. None of these difficulties would arise if the accident victim had made a living will, as his or her wishes would take priority.

Who should make a living will?

             Every person who is legally deemed an adult should really consider making a living will. It is hard for most of us to contemplate our deaths, but the unfortunate reality is that we all have to die at some stage. While most of us can expect to live for many decades, there is always the chance that we may suffer some catastrophic illness or disaster that could leave us totally incapacitated, so we should not consider that living wills are only for older people. There is a certain comfort to be derived from knowing that, should the worst happen, our families and medical staff will follow our wishes. We can also take comfort from knowing that we will not leave our loved ones in a situation of having to make very difficult decisions.

             If you want to make a living will, you can talk to a lawyer. Most lawyers who handle standard wills can also help you make a living will. You can also find free living will forms online. All you have to do is download and complete them, stating your preferences. You will be able to state in detail what treatments you will accept, and what ones you want to decline should you be incapacitated. You may, for example, want to decline feeding by tube, but want to accept artificial respiration treatment.

 


           You can also use a living will to donate your organs. Most people would be happy to know that their organs could be used to extend or improve other peopleís lives, yet there is a worldwide shortage of organ donors. If more people made living wills, then it is almost certain the shortage of organs would be less acute.

Are living wills legally binding?

           Living wills are widely recognized, but each country, state, or province may have its own interpretations and rules. A living will is invalid if the person making it was not fully cognitive at the time the will was made. For example, a living will made by a person in an advanced stage of Alzheimerís disease might be considered invalid. There may also be other requirements, like having the living will signed by a witnesses or public notaries, and having it registered at a recognized repository.

           Like any other legal documents, living wills can be challenged in courts, although this is extremely rare. It should be noted that living wills do not come into effect until the person becomes completely unable to communicate because of unconsciousness or coma. Likewise, a living will does not come into effect unless the person has no possibility of recovery. This means that if there is a chance of recovery, for example following a heart attack, the living will normally has no bearing on treatment. Usually, it will be necessary for one or more doctors to certify that the patient is terminally ill or in a permanent coma before the living will comes into effect.

Letting people know about your living will?

          It is always a good idea to let your family know that you have made a living will, and to tell them where the will is. If nobody knows that you have made a living will, then it cannot be used to decide on your medical treatment.

         Whether you want to discuss your proposals with them before making your living will, is a personal decision. Some people find it helpful to discuss their plans in advance, believing that it helps their families to understand fully why they are choosing particular options. This can make it much easier for the family to deal with issues if the living will ever comes into effect.

Conclusion

         Making a living will using one of many free living will forms is easy to do and delivers two primary benefits. Firstly, it puts you in total control over how you will be treated in an end of life situation. Secondly, it avoids the potential distress your loved ones could face if they have to make critical decisions on your behalf.
