DECLARATION OF A DESIRE FOR A NATURAL DEATH

A living will is an instrument whereby a person can select whether to accept or reject life saving measures in the event of their incapacity; life saving measures such as artificial hydration or artificial nutrition.  If you are in an accident or suffer from a medical condition such as a heart attack or stroke and life saving measures need to be addressed, you get to provide for your wishes through a living will.  This way you, not a doctor or family members, get to make the decision.
