Is a Living Will the Same Thing as an Advance Directive?
A Living Will is one kind of advance directive; however, at the present time in Florida the standard Living Will only pertains to situations involving a terminal illness. Many conditions and situations may arise which do not involve a terminal illness. For example, in most cases a person who is in a “persistent vegetative state” is not considered terminally ill. The Advance Directive – Living Will is an expanded form addressing terminal illness and other conditions.
