When should I sign a living will? My suggestion is you sign it now because you won’t know when you’ll pass away. The purpose of the living will is to authorize the discontinuation of life’s support in the event that you have a terminal condition and state’s condition or a permanent vegetative state. So since you don’t know when you’re going to pass away, you should go ahead and sign this document this time. If you do not wish to be kept alive on a ventilator by or by artificial means the forms are readily available. Usually at doctor’s offices, probably been hospitals. So of course that may be too late if you’re at the hospital. But those are available and I also prepare those and have them sign whenever I do a state planning documents along with the designation of a healthcare surrogate durable power of attorney and your will. So if you have any questions, you can call me at (727) 847-2288.
