-Health Care Proxies and Living Wills
A Living Will is a written statement that expresses your desires with regard to health care treatment if you become mentally incapable and/or physically incapable of expressing those desires. It can include, but need not be limited to, instructions concerning the termination of life support. A Health Care Proxy is a document which allows you to designate a person to make health care decisions for you if you cannot make them for yourself. These decisions can involve the management of your health care in order to keep you healthy. These decisions can also involve the termination of life support.

-Trusts
A trust is a legal entity, separate from the individual who creates the trust. This is similar to a partnership or corporation which is regarded as distinct from its owner. A trust is governed by certain rules which are set out in an agreement—usually between two parties. One person, (the trustor) puts money or other property in the trust. A trustee is the person who agrees to hold the property according to the terms of the agreement. The trust agreement specifies what the trustee is required to do with the property – how he is to hold it, for how long and who is to receive any benefits. Those who are entitled to receive the benefits of the trust are called the beneficiaries.
