Is a living will the same thing as a Power of Attorney?

The simple answer is no. A Power of Attorney is a legal document in which you name a specific person to act on your behalf. On the other hand, a “living will” just addresses your wishes for end-of-life medical care and does not need to name anyone or be drafted in a particular way.
