What Are Some Good Resources for Living Will Form Examples?

The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization website offers sample living will or advance directive forms for each state that are consistent with local laws. Links to forms and living will instructions, in both English and Spanish, are also available at MedlinePlus.

A living will is one type of advance directive. It is a document that explains the types of medical care a person wishes to receive if he is unconscious or otherwise unable to make decisions, according to MedlinePlus. Another type of advance directive is the special health care power of attorney, which designates an individual to make decisions if he is unable to do so.
