An Advance Personal Plan (APP), or ‘living will’, is a document that allows you to make decisions about your future health, financial and lifestyle preferences should you lose decision-making capacity in the future as a result of age, illness, accident or otherwise.

You must have decision-making capacity to make an APP (as when you make a will), and it will only take effect when you lose decision-making capacity.

Your APP does not affect or replace your will.
