Synopsis by Alice Day
The problems that can arise when a person is in critical or intensive care can include decisions that are extremely difficult for family members to make. If there are no instructions in place regarding end-of-life issues, decisions are in the hands of others, and may contradict the actual wishes of the individual. When a person has dealt with these concerns, including assigning a power of attorney, the answers are clear. While most find it hard to address these issues, Living Choices outlines the reasons why it is important to make sure that they are resolved.
