Nassau County Elder Law Attorney
Living Wills in New York
A living will is an advance directive, a document that permits a person to write down instructions expressing their wishes regarding health care, but more particularly about end-of life care. While a health care proxy is typically used to allow a designated agent to make decision for you at times when you are unable to make them for yourself, a critical distinction between the documents is that a living will does not specify an agent. Rather, the document expresses your own wishes about the care you wish to receive, or not receive, at the twilight of your own life. The very purpose is to take this often impossible decision out of the hands of those who do not want to make it.
