Is A Living Will The Same As A Will?
A Living Will deals with “end of life” health care decisions. It indicates whether you want to be put on a respirator or whether you want to receive medical treatment at the end of your life, when it looks like you can not recover from the illness. A Will, on the other hand, is a document that takes effect after you pass away. It says who you want to receive your assets and who you want to be your executor. A Living Will and a Will are two totally separate and different documents.
