The Indiana living will is a document in which the principal pre-determines the types of life-sustaining treatments they consent to and prohibit, as well as under which circumstances treatments should be used or withheld. The completed form makes it clear to attending physicians and caregivers what the principal’s intentions are regarding life-prolonging procedures. Alternatively, the principal can state that they prefer that such questions be left up to their health care provider, superseding any other party’s decision.
