About Living Wills
The purpose of a Living Will is to document your wish that life-sustaining treatment, including artificially or technologically supplied nutrition and hydration, be withheld or withdrawn if you are unable to make informed medical decisions and are in a terminal condition or in a permanently unconscious state.
A living will does not affect the responsibility of health care personnel to provide comfort care to you. Comfort care means any measure taken to diminish pain or discomfort.
Health Care Power Of Attorney
Naming a Health Care Power of Attorney allows a person whom you choose to make health care decisions for you based on instructions that you give in you POA document and according to your wishes as made known to this person.
If your wishes are unclear or unknown, the person you designate will make health care decisions in your best interest. He or she will determine your best interests after considering the benefits, the burdens and risks that might result from a given decision. If no specific person is designated, the document itself will guide decisions about your healthcare.
