Living will remains a popular directive for the elderly

According to recent research, a majority of elderly people have executed an advance health care directive. The one most popular with the elderly is the living will. This is an estate planning document signed by the individual while alive, in which he or she directs health care providers what to do in case of terminal illness, brain death and similar end-of-life circumstances. There is legislation authorizing the use of a living will in all states, including Texas.

Estate planning relies on certain basic documents

Experts generally recommend certain basic documents to prepare for one's later years and for distribution of one's estate at death. These estate planning tools are a simple will, durable power of attorney, advanced medical directives, a living trust and a letter of instructions. The same instruments are generally necessary in Texas and all other states.
