At Caliber Law, we focus on planning for every scenario.
We want to make sure you have documents and protections that are clear to understand and detail all of your wishes even when you may have developed a terminal condition or have succumb to a persistent vegetative state.
What is a Living Will?
A Living Will is a document that helps outline what your wishes are when you have a terminal condition or are in a persistent vegetative state and may need life sustaining procedures such as feeding tubes, hospice care, and can also outline any anatomical gifting. These topics are very personal and specific to your wishes. We will assist you in tailoring the best documents that place the control in back in your hands. This will cover items such as feeding tubes, anatomical gifts, life support, and nursing home or community-based care. Making sure you have these documents completed, should anything happen, will give you piece of mind that your wishes are being followed and your loved ones can simply follow your instructions during a time of high stress.
Why do I need a Living Will if I have a Health Care Power of Attorney?
While both documents can seem repetitive, a Living Will goes into effect only when you develop a terminal condition or are in a persistent vegetative state. A Health Care Power of Attorney gives instructions and authority when you become incapacitated, but not when you develop an irreversible condition. At Caliber Law, we make sure that you are protected for any event and to see that your rights are respected.
Let our attorneys walk you through the main questions to create specialized documents that outline your wishes.
