A Living Will/Advance Directive allows you to state your wishes regarding the way you are looked after in the event that you lose your mental capacity, including preferences for methods of medical treatment and refusal of certain types of treatment. A Living Will/Advance Directive can refer both to an advance decision or an advance statement (which is a separate document).
Make sure you have detailed instructions in place with this Living Will template.. This Living Will/Advance Directive covers circumstances in which you might not want to be kept alive artificially and allows you to set out specific instructions for medical treatment you would and would not like to receive. Use this Living Will/Advance Directive only if you have discussed the matter with your GP and your family.
