Did you know that the state of Massachusetts does not recognize Living Wills as legal documents in terms of guiding your healthcare planning? Living Wills may serve as a guide for your Health Care Agent, but if you are relying on a Living Will to dictate your end-of-life plans, decisions about your care will ultimately be left to your next-of-kin.
Have you talked with your primary care physician about your wishes regarding what you would like done, or not done, in the event that you suffer a serious illness or injury? Have you completed a Health Care Proxy form? Have you discussed, in-depth, what your wishes are with your next-of-kin or Health Care Agent? Are you comfortable enough with the truth of your own mortality that you have even considered these emotionally heavy questions?
