I'd go ahead and help her finish out both the living will and her regular will. BUT I will suggest that on both documents that there is a signature, printed name & address lines (so 3 lines total) for 2 witnesses. Really you need to get two witnesses to all this to be on the safe side. Neighbors or church folk would be good - just not family or anyone who would benefit from anything in the will.

If you really want to cover your butt on this, in many cities the UPS store will also have a notary. Many of the franchisee get notary license as it is an additional service they can easily provide. Anyways if you do this, everybody goes down to the UPS store with the documents and mom & the witnesses all sign and the notary records it in the required-by-the-state book and then you make extra copies. Some banks also will do this but I'd call first as many banks will not do anything notary now that could cause a legal ? later on.
