Writing a Living Will puts you in control

You decide what should be in your Living Will (the legally binding part of which is called an Advance Decision). You may choose all possible intervention in order to prolong your life as much as possible, choose to be left in peace or anything in between – it’s up to you.

By making a Living Will you get to choose and to retain control. Making an Advance Decision (part of a Living Will) can help you to a peaceful passing unhindered by Doctors forced to prolong your life fruitlessly and possibly painfully by virtue of their Hippocratic Oath.

You remove the terrible stress from your family and loved ones, in the event of critical illness, of having to read your mind, by letting everyone know your wishes in advance. Legally you cannot leave these decisions to others; all they can do is say what they think you would want.

Background to Living Wills

Medical developments, dating back to the 1960s, mean that medical professionals are now able to keep people alive for longer than ever before. This has led to the need for some form of legal document, where a patient can record how they want to be treated in their later life.

There are too many cases of people being kept alive who have no quality of life and the family then agonise over decisions regarding their care. They cannot truly know what their loved one wants, because of their inability to communicate. Naturally, this often leads to a lot of pain. It is clear then that Living Wills are vitally important, to alleviate this most difficult of heartaches.

In 1993, the law commission declared that a Living Will should be treated in the same way as an individual stating their wishes. And, in 2005, the Mental Capacity Act enshrined this in law.
