What Is A Living Will?

A living will is a document in which you specify in advance medical treatment that you would or would not want in the event that you become unable to express your wishes. Massachusetts is one of only three states that recognizes health care proxies but does not recognize living wills. Living Wills are still potentially useful because they guide Agents and physicians about the types of choices a person would make.
