A living will is not really a power of attorney.  No fiduciary is chosen.  I group it with powers of attorney as any living will should instruct your decision maker under your healthcare power of attorney.  The person making healthcare decisions for you should also know you’re your wishes are when medical care can no longer make you well again.

 

Like the healthcare power of attorney it should be deposited with all of your medical providers and with your decision maker under your healthcare power of attorney.
