Martin Folino - Your Living Will Attorneys - Dayton Ohio

A Living Will is a legal document you can complete now to declare your wishes regarding the use of life-sustaining treatment if you should become terminally ill or permanently unconscious.

A Living Will:

  • becomes effective only when you are unable to communicate your wishes and are permanently unconscious or terminally ill.
  • spells out whether or not you want life-support technology used to prolong your dying.
  • gives doctors the authority to follow your instructions regarding the medical treatment you want under these conditions.
  • can be changed or revoked by you at any time, but cannot be changed or revoked by anyone else.
  • will be followed for a pregnant woman only if certain conditions apply.
  • specifies under what conditions you would want artificial feeding and fluids to be withheld.
