What is a living will?

Published in: April 2017

The term ‘living will’ is somewhat misleading in that it is not a document related to how a person’s assets are to be dispersed upon their passing, but rather, it is a written document relating to how a person is to be treated in the future if they are incapacitated. The more accurate descriptor for a living will is ‘Advance Care Directives’ and there may be some differences between the States and Territories in relation to such documents.

For any person wishing to make plans for the possibility of future incapacity, it’s essential that you talk to a legal practitioner to ensure that your interests are properly handled.
