The Florida living will is a document that relays the principal’s instructions for their health care if they are incapacitated. The statutory form specifically addresses under which circumstances the principal wishes that life-sustaining treatments be withheld or withdrawn. In the event of the principal’s incapacity, their instructions will be followed if their condition becomes terminal, end-stage, or vegetative.
