Call 410-386-2700 A Living Will Declaration sets forth your desires concerning particular types of medical treatment you do or do not want to receive if you become unable to communicate your own medical care decisions. The Living Will Declaration allows you to make decisions about life-sustaining procedures in three situations: when death from a terminal condition is imminent despite the application of life-sustaining procedures; a condition of permanent unconsciousness called a persistent vegetative state; and an end-state condition, which is an advanced, progressive, and incurable condition resulting in complete physical dependency.

 

A Medical Power of Attorney authorizes your designated Health Care Agent to speak for you and make health care decisions based on what you would want. The Medical Power of Attorney is effective only if you are unable to make health care decisions for yourself.
