A Living Will allows a patient to communicate their wishes for medical treatment in the event they are unable to provide those directives themselves. This is often a simple document that helps make clear to loved ones what steps to take should these difficult decisions need to be made on one’s behalf. Living Wills further help to alleviate emotional and financial stresses that are accompanied with this stage of medical care. A Living Will can have as little or as much detail as one desires.
Elkins Rehabilitation & Care Center has a Living Will form that can be utilized for those who wish to detail these decisions: ERCC Living Will.
