If a loved one falls so ill that they can no longer speak for themselves, it can be hard to decide what to do next. Treatment may extend lives without improving the quality of them, which is why so many people are deciding to have a living will produced whilst they do have the capacity to communicate. When a living will is in place, loved ones and healthcare providers know exactly what to do if you become critically ill. In a living will, you can inform others which medical treatments you would like to receive and which ones you don’t. A living will is sometimes called a health care directive.
If you have decided that you would like to draw up such a document, The UK Living Will Registry are here to help. They can offer you the guidance you need and ensure that nothing is overlooked. The will can be amended as many times as it needs to be whilst you can still speak for yourself. Living wills mean that there doesn’t need to be any confusion or ambiguity about the healthcare you would like to receive if or when the time comes. Find out more at the website.
