We all need to think about end-of-life decisions. I deal with families every week where a loved one has not signed Advanced Health Care Directive documents and now that person is terminally ill. In addition, my physician clients share the agony with families where the wishes of the dying patient have not been expressed in a legally-enforceable manner. This situation just increases the anguish for everyone involved.
Executing a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care and/or a Living Will are critically important for all of us. Once these documents are signed, our families can rest assured that decisions about whether or not to prolong life and whether or not to continue life support, food and water can be made in a way which is consistent with our wishes. Let’s all get this done!
