Make a Free New York Living Will

A Living Will is a legal document that provides guidance on what a person wants for their end-of-life care and medical treatment. It is also known as an Advance Directive. The living will is only valid until death, and helps doctors provide care based on what is stated in the document. This is especially important around situations such as Do Not resuscitate (DNR). Create this document to help your family and doctors carry out your end of life plans. This document should be used in conjunction with a Medical Power of Attorney, which appoints an agent to make critical health care decisions on a patient's behalf.

New York Living Will: What Is It?

A New York living will is a legal document that you complete in order to explain your wishes related to medical care. A New York living document is consulted by healthcare providers if you are not able to make your own medical decisions. This document is also used to an agent to make decisions on your behalf. New York has specific laws about who can and cannot act as your agent. A New York living will must be signed in front of two witnesses. Your witnesses cannot be under 18, named as your agent, or be the person who signs on your behalf if you are unable to sign your own name.
