Do I need a living will?

Posted on Updated on

This is a common question I get asked by a variety of different types of clients.  The simple answer is YES!  A living will is not really a will, but is a physician’s directive (also known as an advanced directive or Do Not Resuscitate).  An advanced directive is governed by the Texas Health and Safety Code to allow people to choose what type of care they want if they need life-sustaining treatment.   I believe that everyone should have a Physician’s Directive to ensure that they get to make the decisions about life support and not burden their family with such decisions.

    Living wills are one of the things that people often neglect to attend to. Accidents happen all the time. We do not want to burden our family with such sad decisions. They would want to carry out the best decision. That is why it is best to be prepared so as not to burden our love ones.
