Product Description

Living Will Lawpack

By making a Living Will using this Lawpack you can communicate your wishes to refuse any medical treatment in the future, in case it's not possible for you to express your preferences at the time.  

A Living Will is legally binding on medical professionals and can be referred to should you become incapable of making your wishes known, because of age or after an accident.

With a Living Will you make your wishes known and remove the burden of decision-making that loved ones would otherwise have to deal with. For example, should you suffer from a terminal illness you can make an advance decision in your Living Will to refuse treatment that will prolong your life. Alternatively, a Living Will can be used to refuse a blood transfusion or organ donation on religious reasons.
