A Living Will is a written legal document stating your wishes regarding life-prolonging medical treatments. If you have a terminal condition, end-stage condition, or are in a persistent vegetative state, your Living Will states what life-prolonging medical treatment(s), if any, you wish to receive. A Living Will addresses whether you want medical treatments to prolong your life, such as a feeding tube, surgery, blood transfusions, and pain medicine.

In comparison, a Do Not Resuscitate Order (DNR) is a medical order written by your doctor, instructing health care providers not to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if your heart stops beating or you stop breathing. The DNR is only a decision to withhold CPR and does not affect the administration of other medical treatments such as a feeding tube, surgery, blood transfusions, and pain medicine. Back to Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning
