Living Wills (Declaration of Desire for Natural Death)

The attorneys of  Davis Frawley, LLC in Lexington, South Carolina, provide assistance in preparing and executing Living Wills (Declaration of Desire for Natural Death).

 

In South Carolina, a Living Will (Declaration of Desire for Natural Death) is a state-
standardized document in which you may express your wishes concerning life-sustaining treatment in
the event you become terminally ill or persistently vegetative.   The Living Will takes effect at
the point you are unable to communicate and are not expected to recover.   With the Living Will,
you must decide what treatment should or should not be administered in the future, without knowing
what your circumstances will be.

 

Health care facilities are required by law to ask whether you have Living Will, upon
admission.  It is advisable to provide copies of these documents to your named agents, family
members, primary physician, and others who may participate in health-related decisions for you.
