What is a living will?

A living will lists the types of health care treatments you would or would not want under various circumstances. There is no official New York State form for a living will; the one provided here is just an example that can be changed to be consistent with your wishes. If you choose to complete a living will, we recommend completing a living will with the assistance of a lawyer. A living will cannot replace a Health Care Proxy Form.
