  • What is a Living Will?

A Living Will is not a Will in the traditional sense. Whereas a Last Will and Testament is a document that distributes your estate, a Living Will is more of an expression of your preferred medical decisions and the type of care you would like to receive, especially concerning end of life issues. Although a Living Will is not legally binding in the Commonwealth, it can be used as an important tool in estate planning to guide loved ones (especially an acting health care proxy agent) on how you would like care and medical decisions handled.

Falco & Associates, P.C. can provide comfort and support to your loved ones by helping create a Living Will as a way to know that the decisions they are making on your behalf are fulfilled.
