Learn About Your Issue
This category concerns how to get, maintain, implement, and deal with living wills, to determine how they will be treated if they are terminally ill. A living will is different than a last will and testament. It allows a person to approve or decline certain types of medical care if one has a terminal injury or illness. It includes provisions about declining medical treatment, that might lead one to die as a result.
