What is a "living will"? Why would anyone need one? What are the advantages of having one? How does a person make one? The answer to these and other questions concerning the struggle of people, especially the elderly, to keep from being overwhelmed by others who would manage their health and property can be found in Writing a Living Will. Written for the educated layperson who is interested and concerned about his/her own health care future and the health care future of loved ones, this book will also be a useful reference to the legal profession in determining legal options in health care issues.
