Help Your Family By Working With Our Family
One of the best ways to ensure that your loved ones have a solid foundation for the future is to create a living will. This document stipulates your end-of-life medical decisions, giving your family and medical care professionals a much-needed guideline to follow if you cannot make decisions for yourself.
At Buchler and Buchler, LLC, we have helped thousands of Louisiana clients create living wills and many other estate planning documents. Founded in 1949, our firm has been passed down through three generations of family. You can rely on us to prioritize the best interests of you and your loved ones for generations to come.
What Should A Living Will Contain?
The most important things to address in a living will are the medical decisions that you would want for yourself if you cannot give voice to your needs. You can include issues such as:
- Pain management
- Prescription medications
- Surgical procedures
- Mechanical ventilation
- Tube feeding
- Hospice care
- Organ donation
These issues are not pleasant to address. However, they are critical aspects of everyone’s end-of-life care that you should think about as soon as possible.
Why Create A Living Will Now?
Life is unpredictable. No amount of preparation can prevent you from unexpected illness or accidents. Every adult should have certain estate documents such as living wills so you have a plan in place in case a catastrophe strikes. This way, you can rest assured that your family knows what to do if you no longer have the capacity to make your own decisions.
