Living Wills: Your Right, Your Choice

Every person has the authority to self-determination especially on the subject of health care. This right encompasses the decision to refuse or even accept a particular type of treatment, may it be as fundamental as an oral medication or even as complicated being a surgical procedure.

An individual who will be of sound brain and above Eighteen years of age is also eligible to plan and give directions concerning future medical treatment in the event of a serious infirmity or vegetative state. He or she might convey certain wishes through living wills.

A full time income will is a legal file that informs your immediate loved ones and your doctors regarding your preferences about life-support actions. These specialized band of medical treatments could include artificial respirators and pipe feeding all of which aim to prolong life without any definite hope associated with reinstating quality. The high-tech machines and gadgets may possibly target and support specific organs in your body such as the lungs, filtering system, or the heart.

Typically, the orders produced in a living will becomes effective as soon as two qualified doctors one of who should be the attending medical doctor both concur on paper that the patient is actually either in a permanent/irreversible vegetative problem or close to dying. Needless to say, it should be set up that he or she is definitely incapable of expressing health care choices.

In case you have a change regarding heart after finishing a previous living will certainly, you may effect the specified alterations in the legal document at any time. You may even call the whole thing off if you feel compelled to do so. Then again, you must adhere to certain procedures for that cancellation of a residing will. State laws and regulations, with regard to living wills and advance directives, typically manage this lawful motion.

A completed and duly signed living will should be saved in a safe location in places you and your immediate family can easily get hold of that. Therefore, storing this kind of legal document in the secured deposit package is never a good idea.

It’s also advisable to inform your lawyer for those who have one, as well as your following of kin, about the existence and location of your living will certainly. In addition, your participating in physician and doctor should be notified as well as instructed in making the particular document a part of your own permanent hospital records.

Living Will Vs. Power of Legal professional

A living will will be activated only when dying is imminent or even when a patient falls in a persistent vegetative condition and has lost all faculties of communication. It only deals with the application or removal of life-support measures.

On the other hand, the durable power regarding attorney works in different ways. It basically goes into effect when a patient becomes incapacitated to produce autonomous health care determinations. Nonetheless, he or she does not have to be in a vegetative state or perhaps in a near-death condition.

The power of attorney also allows a surrogate to speak in behalf of the patient and to make the necessary health care decisions. Yet unlike a living may, the determinations are not restricted to life-prolonging treatments. The type as well as extent of choices a surrogate can make essentially depends on your preferences.

It’s not compulsory to have equally a power of legal professional and a living may. However, if you do choose to have both, a few that they dont clash. In addition, you should view dwelling wills as a right and not as a privilege offered only to special individuals.

    Sometimes you might ask someone why God permits such evil and a typical response is, “We all have free will and the choice of what to do, whether it be morally good or bad”.

    Can anyone give any criticisms of this defence?

    How about if we pack all Obama supporters into a few states of their choice and let them live off the Obama leadership for one year, while the producers of this country will live in other states?

    I wonder how long it would take for the Obama supporters to start fighting each other or starve to death?

    Is health care in Singapore free like in the UK and other European countries? Or do people have to pay to get check ups, have surgery, use the hospital, etc?

    What if somebody is poor and they can’t afford to pay for health care?

    And what happens if somebody is living in Singapore but is not a Singaporean citizen?

    My Brother and I were having an interesting debate on the US policy to take care of those that refuse to live responsible lives. I think we have an interesting perspective considering our families backgrounds.

    Both our Mother and Father come from very poor, backwoods families. They both had large families of six or more. Our Father’s side all finished school and went to college (Except our Dad). Our Mother’s side just lived in the moment. Our Dad’s family had between 1-3 kids each. Our Mother’s had five or more. Our Mother’s side drinks, smoke and get most if not all of their income from government checks while the other side hardly drinks if at all, do not smoke and make a good living working their butts off.

    The strange difference is that my Father’s side is very distant and not social. They are very selfish, but good people. My Mother’s side are very fun, caring people that enjoy being around each other. I actually prefer the company of my Mother’s side even though they usually need money to ‘get by’.

    Still, I do not feel that this is a healthy nor fair system. Growing up in a very poor region, I can safely say that the amount of poor, irresponsible families is growing faster than the responsible ones and I believe it’s thanks to a system that rewards poor life decisions. My Mother and Father had six kids, four girls and two boys. My Brother and I are in our thirties, and while we did not finish school we made pretty decent choices where he went on to own his own fishing boat and makes over six figures and I joined the Army, went to a trade school for welding and while not rich I do own my own house, two vehicles and have a nice savings put away. Neither of us have children but are married and planning on having maybe one or two when the time is right. On the other side, our four sisters started to have children at the age of 17 (All of them) with men that were clearly losers, and now have 14 kids amongst them all and rely entirely on government assistance to survive.

    My Brother and I both tried to keep them in school, even bought a car, clothes and schools supplies for the middle two, but they all just wanted to have fun living in the moment. I kid you not, their logic was why should they go to school and work their butts off when they can just sit at home and play with their kids while they receive low income housing and have everything they need given to them by the government.

    It makes me sad to know that they live in this cycle and there is nothing I can do to break it. I believe that we’ve created a system that has caused a codependent mentality in the poor. I think that as long as people are given the choice of working or not working and still receiving enough money to live, many will choose the latter. I believe that politicians bribe the lower income with gifts of entitlements in order to earn their vote. I do not think that politicians care if this tactic causes an economic collapse because they know they will be fine.

    Having maybe read through all this, what do you think?
    @Mathew- a very good perspective on the matter. I agree that there has to be a middle ground where we do not have a large population of out of work turning to crime to survive, and a large population that will gladly do nothing as long as they get paid to do nothing. I do not think that current recipients should have their benefits removed since they are already dependent on them and to take them away would cause massive outrage and increase in criminal activity, as you said.

    Maybe the policy should change so that you will only be paid if you are going to school or working full time. There is no reason why anyone cannot go to school nor why they cannot work considering the variety of jobs available. If we don’t curve this trend of do-nothing-living I fear there will come a point where we cannot sustain it which may lead to a rapid withdrawal from government assistance.

    Living books will be coming to my school, which are a collection of ‘books’ that are people.
    Readers are offered the chance to engage in informal half-hour conversations with the living ‘books’ about their lives and life choices.

    The book I will be ‘reading’ is about a man who grew up in Nazi Germany.

    What questions would you want to ask?
    Do you think it would be offensive if I ask questions involving Hitler?

    I plan to immigrate to another country when I get older, and I always hear stories of people that immigrate without thinking about health care and ending up in crowded public hospitals or not having health assistance at all.
    Well, I do worry about it. So, what should I do long before or just after arriving there?

    Will they be raised by resentful mothers? Unfit mothers? Will they be tossed into orphanages? Into dumpsters?

    Will they still be aborted, as they always have been? The only difference being that living, breathing, thinking women will die from botched back alley abortions because they can not afford to do what more wealthy women can do? That is, go to a place where abortion is not illegal and have the procedure.

    Is this the alternative sought by pro life activists? Do they have a better solution, or are they just trying to blindly eliminate something they see as wrong with no real solution in sight?

    There were several stated goals of health care reform when the legislation began.

    Uninsured should have affordable health care – with the current legislation it is estimated that it will leave about 10 million uninsured.

    Is this bill put together just to be able to say that something passed without any real accomplishment?

    Affordable health care – the current legislation would raise premiums immediately even though no benefits would be available under the bill for at least 3 years.

    i dont think it does. if someone has a choice between living a life of crime or going to school, they will make the decision based on what they have been taught, their environmental needs and their capacity to understand things. so when they make a choice, it is determined by all these factors.
    my point is that even though we can “choose” what we want to do, we are not free. it all comes down to our ability to understand things. if i decide to read a book instead of watch tv, its because i know that reading will be better for me, and my will to not be lazy is stronger than my will to be lazy. that is not freedom
    “If I did not want to go to school I would skip it, if I wanted to live a life or crime I can… But I choose not to. The key word is choose, and yes I come from a place where crime is the easy option but I choose not to be apart of that.”

    you chose not to skip because you reasoned that it was the best thing to do. that is not free will.

    does a person with POA see to it that a living will is carried through – or are they legally seperate things?

  17. Allen February 20, 2014 at 10:40 pm Reply

    Fate and destiny aside, of course. Because with fate, there are no choices. Even if the bible says ‘you can go on the good path or the bad path’ apparently God is all-knowing, and will know what you are to do in any case.

    Anyways, consider this: An African boy is in his “house” when it is raided by soldiers. They tell him he can *choose* to come with them and become a soldier and they will let his family live, or he can *choose* not to and his family will die.
    Is this really a choice?
    What do you think?

    I think that it isn’t, because there is only one realistic option assuming the boy loves his family. Yes, he can CHOOSE either way, but he won’t. I think a “choice situation” is one where there are at least two feasable, reasonable options. Instead of, “you can chose to eat this popsicle or not” it would be “you can have this popsicle, or this icecream, or nothing”. There are at least two options there that would allow a person to make a decision based on their preferences, timing, and what is “right”, not because if they don’t there will be a consequence such as not having one at all.

    Another example: A prison guard tells a prisoner that he can squat and cough or not squat and cough and be sprayed with mace and be forced to squat and cough. Is there REALLY a choice here? If the prisoner has any sort of reasonable mind, he will squat and cough.

    The reason I ask this is because most adults say these sorts of things. They give two “choices” both of which are unpleasent, and say, “this is YOUR choice, Susan. I am not telling you what to do, YOU are deciding for yourself. Clean your room or don’t and get your allowance taken away.”

    What do you think?
    @gismoll: It is unfair to bring belief into this. “Choosing” whether or not one believes in God is not an ultimatum as in my African Boy example. It is a matter of personal feelings.
    I appreciate your answer though.

    I attend a community college full time and I’m 19 years old. It is my fourth semester here so far, and i never had a job. I was just focused on school, and i am trying to maintain a high gpa. Now when i was in high school i had plans to go to college. But i chose the community college to save money. Now when i was in high school my parents got mad at me one time, and told me i was going into the air force. So i took the asvab, and my parents were kinda upset i took it. When they wanted me to go into the air force at first. They wanted me to do something with my life, now they don’t want me going into the military at all. I feel like they don’t want me going to a college at all, they want me to take a year off from school after this semester.

    Now seeing this situation, i have no where to go. I never had a job before. Also, i have no privacy at home and i still feel like a child. I don’t feel like an adult at all. So what are my next steps now, because my family is moving soon so i can’t find a job here. Should i just look for a job at our new location and see how that works out. What are my options, and will i be living at home forever.

But I was reading about the BaH and it seems they will only give you that allowance for off-base living if their on-base barracks are full. Is this true and it’s more chance than choice? Most my friends say it’s easy to get off-base BaH. Just making sure she will have no problems coming with me, Thanks

    I’m currently living with my mom. My dad lives 2 hours away. I’ve lived with my mom my entire life & just visited my dad for a few days – week/two at a time, not all that often.
    My mom’s side of the family things my dad is a total low life. I’m 18 now. Well we all know the economy is rough, so were moving out of our double wide w/ $750 rent to a single wide we owned that’s already paid off. It’s a three bedroom, but the third hardly qualifies, so my mom & stepdad use it as an office. When we move back my room is supposed to be combined with the office, a 10 x 8 room.
    I do not have a vehicle of my own. I do not currently have a cell phone, due to bills being too high & it didn’t take priority. At my dad’s, he says they will build me my own room. I would have a cell phone again.
    Btw, I have one sister that lives with my mom. 2 brothers & 1 sister that live with my dad & stepmom. Many more people. I don’t do well under stress, like my time to myself. My mom is very conservative, strict, close minded. My dad is in a motorcycle club, tattoos, easy going.
    I love them both so much, but I’m ready for change. I don’t know what to do, because I know either way, I’m going to hurt one family or the other…
    Any opinions or advice anyone can give? or if y’all need more details, I think I’ve already wrote too much, lol..
    Yes, I have graduated highschool.
    & I can’t join any military type things due to severe asthma.
    & I’m not being kicked out or anything. Everything is fine. I just think it might be time for change, but don’t know if it’s the best idea. I’m going to live with one or the other, being on my own isn’t an option right now. There will be room for me at my dads. & the single wide with my mom is supposedly only going to be a temporary arrangement for 5-6 months & then we’re supposed to get a bigger place, we just need time to get financially stable.
    The job outlook where I currently live is horrible, & we live 5 miles from the closest gas station, out in the country. My dad lives in a very busy city, I could easily find a job & walk to work. It will be a while, at least February before I would have an available vehicle here. There is also a beauty school I’d like to attend where my dad lives. Realistically my dad’s is better suited due to more jobs & opportunities in general. But I’m a momma’s girl & hate to hurt anyone..
    If I moved to my dad’s it would only be cramped temporarily. Their current house is month to month rented, so they’re not within contract. He says as soon as I give him a final answer they will get a bigger place to include room for me. They are living in a three bedroom as well.

    My dad is 83 years old dying with prostate cancer and he just told me he is changing his living will. He has 2 kids, me (28 years old) and I have an older half brother (40s w wife and kids). He is worth a little more than a million dollars in real estate investments and cash. He just told me he is only going to give me $100,000 and the rest to my older brother.

    Before, his living will stated 50% shares for me and my brother. Now he is changing it and obviously I am upset. My older brother is getting 2 houses plus cash while I only get $100,000 and that is all.

    When my father dies, is there a way I can get 50%? or I have no choice?

    How do you live life to the fullest, when you are poor and you have responsibilities?

    If your childhood sucks and just about this moment that you have enough money to actually live your life, but you have responsibilities for your family (parents & sisters, not wife or kids)…

    So.. Do you wait until you’re really rich (which for me, it will probably take 10 years or so), or you just abandon your family in the hope that they’ll get inspiration to live their life too, even though they can’t, cause they’re poor..?

    How should the poor live their life to the fullest? This question always confuse me… Because we only live once.. so we must make the most of it….

    I just got accepted to mass art and have been finding it very hard to decide to live at home or live at the school. I am coming in as a transfer freshman and because i will be coming in as a transfer student i will be able to live in their artist residence. The artist residence is apartment style living i will be living with 2-3 room mates but we all will have our own room. We will also share a kitchen/living room and a bathroom. We will also have access to a two story studio. Although this sounds awesome it will also double the price i was planning on spending. If i don’t live near the school i will have an hour commute each way to and from the school. I have never lived away from home but am definitely ready to move out.

    Looking for opinions/thoughts from both parents and young adults here:

    My daughter will be starting college in the fall, and living at home. (Her choice mostly — chose a local college and prefers to live at home. And we’re fine with saving the big bucks.)

    How do things change when your ‘child’ is now an adult who happens to share your home? Did the rules change? (Curfews? Homework assistance/nagging? Housework?)

    She won’t have a car but will (hopefully) have her license. Do you still shuttle your kid places, or is s/he responsible for getting around independently?

    I keep reminding myself that if she was off at MIT living in the dorm I wouldn’t have any idea what she was doing most of the time — but since she WILL be at home, I’m not sure how to handle the shift.

    (BTW, she’s a good kid, so I don’t anticipate that she’ll be suddenly partying all night if we DON’T have a curfew or lay down a lot of rules.)

    Obama will sign the Employee Free Choice Act if he becomes President. The act basically guarantees that many more companies’ employees will be forced into unions. If you will look at the heavily unionized countries in Europe, you will also see that the same countries have chronic unemployment problems. That will be the likely result in America also. Do you think Obama’s legislation will do more harm than good?
    Eloquent answer, Kukok, but you gave the answers right out of the Union playbook. I was involved in four union organizing attempts. We were not allowed to discipline or fire anyone, even for rampant absenteeism. We were not allowed to give raises or bonuses or make improvements to the health plan (Employers can draw charges of Unfair Labor Practices for any of these). In almost every case, the Union had already signed up more than half the employees before the Company even knew they were being solicited by the union. Under current laws, the unions have the ability to promise the workers anything, such as a $5 across-the-board raise, because the courts beleive the employees should know that the unions do not have the power to keep their promises! If you want to see what mass unionization will do to the country, look at GM, Ford and Chrysler. Michigan is in a depression.
    Bedford C., the question I have to ask people who want subsidized health insurance is, are the 60% of the Americans who have employer-paid health insurance willing to give it up so that 100% of the people can have government-supplied health insurance? Because that is what will happen for sure if Single-Payer insurance is passed. Very few employers and employees will be willing to pay for employer-based insurance as well as a sizeable tax on income to pay for single-payer insurance.

    I am about to choose my choices and i do. know whether to go into law or health care. I posted a question about law and many people said it was very expensive and hard to find employment. So i have been considering going into health care instead. I wanted to know what jobs are in health care? How much do they pay per year and how long it takes to be qualified in that profession.
    Many Thanks.

    I have been kicked out of my parents house, and have had to keep Haru, my cat there as she is not allowed in the place that i live now… Haru is my life, and i have been devastated ever since i left. When i went to pick up a few more of my things, she was a little stand-off-ish of me at first (probably mad that i left) and then finally began to purr and cuddle me again after about 5 mins. Then when it was time to leave, she sat in the drive way and watched me go, with a look on her face as if she was saying “why are you leaving again? what have i done wrong?” I know thats probably what she was thinking, or rather, wondering why she isnt going with me…And it breaks me heart to have to see her like that. According to my mother, she then came inside and sat in my old room for hours, as though she was waiting for me to come back… Anyway, I know she misses me, and i have not visited her again since, as i dont want to put her through the trauma of thinking shes done something wrong and that im abandoning her again. It’s not my choice to live here, it is the only place i can live at the moment…But my point is; Will she forget me? I know Haru is in good hands with my mother, and even though i have been told that she may be able to live in this house just so long as she is downstairs and not allowed up AT ALL i dont want to bring her here because i dont want to have to lock her downstairs, thats just cruel…She’s my world and id do anything to make her happy, i know shes happy where she is because she has free run of the house, yard and street (its a very quiet street) but it just breaks my heart to think that she may forget me, or hate me for leaving…
