Advance Health Care Directives/Living Wills
With advances in medical technology, it has been possible for some time to physically prolong life despite neurological damage and failure of the bodies’ major organs and systems. Most people have at least some idea of the medical care they would, or would not, wish to receive should they become unable to function mentally.
Gerry Kane is the attorney who is skilled in advising and drafting Advanced Health Care Directives at the Law Offices of Gerald L. Kane. He understands how emotionally difficult it can be to face the possibility that, at some point in the future, you might not be able to make your wishes regarding medical care and treatment known to your family, and to your doctors.
He is dedicated to protecting your rights and interests through development of a comprehensive estate plan, which includes an advanced health care directive to outline your personal views on your own health care. Call 818-905-6088 to schedule an appointment with a lawyer.
Learn More About Living Wills
An advanced health care directive, also called a living will, outlines your wishes for end-of-life medical treatment and health care in cases where you have become terminally ill or permanently incapacitated.
A living will dictates how you would like to be treated should a medical emergency arise. All of your wishes regarding life support and other medical decisions, as noted in the directive, will be respected by those caring for you.
Creating a legal document that expresses your personal views on these matters gives your family the assurance that your wishes for medical treatment and health care are respected, and can prevent costly and time-consuming legal battles.
