Living Will and Estate Planning

Make Your Own Healthcare Decisions

An Advance Directive, also known as a Living Will, grants you the right to make important health care decisions. Understanding and exercising these rights under New Jersey Law is crucial. With an Advance Directive, you have the power to designate someone who will make decisions on your behalf and articulate your preferences regarding your health care. You also retain the right to decline any treatments and establish future directives that will guide your loved ones and health care providers.

It’s important to note that your Advance Directive will only come into effect if you become unable to make decisions for yourself. Remember, you have the freedom to change your mind about any of these decisions at any time. Your appointed health care representative possesses legal authority to make decisions on your behalf. Taking the time to engage in open conversations with your family and doctor is essential. Consulting an attorney can provide assistance in finalizing your wishes and ensuring their enforceability in your care journey.

At Freeman & Patel, we are here to assist you in the execution of a Living Will. This important document enables you to proactively establish your wishes based on your personal and/or religious beliefs. The extent of medical intervention you are comfortable with during a health crisis is a deeply personal and significant choice. By executing an Advance Directive, you provide invaluable guidance to your loved ones and physicians when they are faced with decision-making responsibilities. Rest assured, having an Advance Directive guarantees that you will receive appropriate medical care. However, decisions regarding interventions such as Mechanical Ventilation and Artificially Provided Nutrition and Fluids may still need to be made. You have the option to make these decisions now or entrust them to a family member when the need arises, or even both.

You have the freedom to modify or revoke your advance directive whenever you choose. It is within your rights to make decisions regarding your medical treatment. To ensure your wishes are known and respected, it is advisable to put them in writing and keep a readily accessible copy for yourself and your loved ones. Distributing copies of the advance directive to your designated health care representative (proxy), doctor, as well as appropriate family members or friends is also essential.
