At some point, we come to the realization that we will be absent from the lives of our loved ones, this happens either through our demise or incapacity. Estate planning is where we ensure that our loved ones are financially protected, that there is no unnecessary leakage of wealth over what was painstakingly built up over a lifetime and if there is a legacy, that legacy is continued on.

A legal document you sign in advance to inform your doctor that you do not want to use any life sustaining treatment to prolong your life in the event you become terminally ill, unconscious and where death is imminent.
