Creating Advance Medical Directives in Loudoun County
It may be unpleasant to think about, but death is an unfortunate reality of life.

A living will is a type of advance medical directive, documenting your medical decisions made in advance. The living will instructs your doctors and loved ones to follow your wishes in the event that you are in an irreversible coma, in a permanent vegetative state, or have a terminal illness. Most people use a living will to ensure that they are kept as comfortable as possible at the end of life.
They are also used to avoid medical heroics like:
- Life support
- Forced feeding
- Surgeries to artificially extend your life
By creating this kind of advance medical directive, you can maintain control, live the life you want, and die on your own terms.
Advance medical directives also remove a heavy burden from your loved ones’ shoulders. No one wants to be the one who “pulls the plug,” but in certain circumstances, many people feel it is the right thing to do. An advanced medical directive can help your loved ones feel better about making certain decisions regarding your end-of-life care.
