What is a Living Will?
A Living Will lets you record your wishes for any future medical care or treatments that you may need to receive if you cannot communicate those wishes at the time.
A Living Will only deals with your wishes regarding medical treatment during your lifetime, so you should still ensure that a separate Will is written to handle who you would like to inherit your estate after you die.
The cost of a Living Will starts from £75 +VAT (£90 including VAT).
As part of the Co-op Group our values of openness, honesty, social responsibility and caring for others are core to the service we provide.
In a Living Will, you can set down your wishes for any future medical care or treatments that you may receive if you can’t communicate those wishes at the time.
You may have strong feelings about receiving or not receiving certain types of medical treatments, making a Living Will can give you greater peace of mind. If you decide to write a Living Will, you should discuss this with your GP so that your intentions are clearly recorded in your medical records.
Benefits of Making a Living Will
By deciding now what you would like to happen regarding any future medical care and treatment, you and your family will have the peace of mind knowing your wishes are recorded.
A Living Will is a part of planning what you would like to happen in the event of serious illness. It allows you to state specific types of treatment and care you would like to receive and gives you the opportunity to specify treatments you don't want to receive in certain circumstances.
For example, you can refuse treatments to keep you alive, such as CPR and life support; but your Living Will must make it very clear about the circumstances for your refusal of treatment. A living will cannot be used for euthanasia but can help medical professionals when making difficult decisions.
If you want to plan ahead or have recently been diagnosed with early stages of a degenerative or terminal illness, creating a Living Will can give you greater peace of mind that your wishes are absolutely clear.
If you decide to write a Living Will, you should discuss this with your doctor so your intentions are clearly recorded in your medical records.
Living Wills are often created in conjunction with a Property and Financial Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney. This allows you to give people you trust the authority to manage your property and financial affairs on your behalf.
