We believe everyone should have a Living Will. Life is unpredictable, so it's always best to plan ahead and make sure your preferences are known. 

 

If you were ever to become incapacitated, there may no indication of what medical treatment you'd want without a Living Will in place. If you have a Healthcare Agent, there may be little for your Healthcare Agent to rely on in making decisions for you. 

If you have no Living Will and no Healthcare Agent, there could be disputes or litigation over your medical condition and treatment. Doctors may be required to keep you on life support and administer treatments, even if these would go against your undocumented wishes. Your family and loved ones might not be able to control your treatment, which could also lead to disputes within your circle. 

Creating a Living Will lets you make your preferences and desires known, and helps to avoid confusion or conflict.
