Utah Estate Planning Glossary - Living Will

Living Will:  a legal document that allows a person to express their intent and desire relating to health care decisions, particularly with regard to heroic measures or end-of-life care decisions.  In Utah, a living will is more formally referred to as an "advance health care directive."  The legislature has set forth, by statute, the policies and legal procedures involved with an advance health care directive.  However, individuals are given a great degree of latitude in determining what kind of health care procedures to accept or reject, and whom to designate as agent.  See also, advance health care directive.
