3. Your Wishes Matter – an Estate Plan Makes Them Clear
A Healthcare Directive – also known as a Living Will – is an essential part of a comprehensive Estate Plan. This document makes your wishes for different levels of life-saving healthcare 100% clear. It also directs a specific person to be responsible for carrying out your wishes if you are unable to do so yourself. Should you be unexpectedly gravely injured or become very ill, your Living Will comes into effect. This simple document can allow your family to focus on what is most important, rather than having to make healthcare decisions that are most often quite painful for any loved one to make.
