An interesting and worthwhile article. Death Beds: Living Wills Slowly Take Root – click here. A few years ago I handled a case where the issue was whether to disconnect mom from life support. The family was divided. Mom had no living will or other document expressing what her wishes would be. Mom was essentially comatose. The Court called in experts and family members also testified. A twist in the case – it turned out mom was over and improperly medicated and the medications were interacting – medications and their interactions were reduced and fixed and mom was fine for years – returned to her normal self.
