Wills, Trusts & Estates: Plain and Simple – Advance Directives Are Important: COVID-19 Or Not

June 18, 2020

Living Wills, Health Care Proxies, and Power of Attorneys

It is important to have advance directives in place, whether in the midst of a pandemic or not. All adults should have three types of advance directives.

A living will is a document in which you state your wishes regarding medical treatment. It can include instructions about the termination of life support and artificial nutrition and hydration. Because your wishes expressed in a living will are open to interpretation by those providing your medical care, it is important to have a health care proxy.
