Who Should Create a Living Will?

Any person over age 18 may (and should) create a living will. Here are some common reasons why people create a living will:

  • Declining health

  • To designate a specific person to make healthcare decisions for you

  • The possibility of surgery or hospitalization

  • Desire to state your wishes so that it is more likely that they will be carried out

  • Diagnosis of a terminal condition with no hope of recovery
