LIVING WILL vs LAST WILL

A Last Will allows you to express your desires regarding assets, dependents and pets. A Living Will is an Advance Directive that allows you to express your desires regarding medical care and end of life treatment decisions like receiving artificial nutrition and hydration.

LIVING WILL vs HEALTH CARE PROXY

While both documents involve health care decisions, a Health Care Proxy appoints an agent to make decisions for you and is typically broader in scope, whereas a Living Will does not appoint an agent and is specific to certain medical conditions. A Health Care Proxy can cover all medical decisions you would make yourself or you can limit those powers however you'd like (surgery, medication, etc...). A Living Will only applies if you are incapacitated due to being in a vegetative state or having a terminal illness likely to result in death in a short period of time. If you are incapacitated and in one of these conditions, the Living Will directs whether you want to receive artificial nutrition and hydration.
