A Health Care Directive and Living Will at a Glance

We all know that our death is a reality.

End of life decision making is hard to discuss.

Think about this:

What is more important

The quality of our life or the length of life?


Written by Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. of Hanlon Niemann & Wright, a New Jersey Power Of Attorney Lawyer

With a well written Health Care Directive and Living Will, you define and decide under what circumstances you wish to be kept alive or be allowed to die. This document is so important. You cannot fully appreciate the wisdom and value of what I have just stated unless and/or until you face a life or death decision for someone very close to you. Please do not delay in having one prepared for you today.
