Such a will declares that you do not want or wish to be kept alive by such procedures, and authorizes doctors and named relatives to disconnect any equipment keeping you alive when you become physically or mentally incapacitated and have no realistic hope of returning to your normal life.

All you have to do is sign it in front of two impartial adults who are not related to you, who won’t inherit anything from you, and who are not medical personnel who might be in a position to disconnect your life-support equipment.

Once you hve executed it, keep a copy with your medical records, telling yourfamily of its location, and give a copy to your executor of your estate.
