A living will is a document that spells out a person's end-of-life decision. If at some point that person is unable to communicate his wishes, a living will allows family members and physicians to ensure the patient's choices are respected, explains Rocket Lawyer. People create a living will when they want specific wishes outlined to increase the chance those wishes are carried out, when a person is facing the possibility of hospitalization or surgery, when an individual wants to create an estate plan, or when someone has been diagnosed with a terminal illness.
When drafting a living will, an agent needs to be appointed to ensure the patient's wishes are carried out. In just about every state, the agent needs to be a legal adult age 18 or older, says Rocket Lawyer.
