This was the closing article in last week’s The Week magazine.
Talking about dementia and more specifically the issue of long term care for a longer living generation that is racked with life changing diseases/illness/whatever you want to call it.
Thinking about this and the unwanted and often not needed encroachment of the federal government into our lives, why don’t they encroach benevolently in an area that can use it? Make it a requirement at age 40 that each citizen has on file a completed, legal and ethical living will that also addresses the matters of diseases/ailments such as dementia. This way family and friends no with certainty how to proceed and the individual can possess more control of their fate if their life deteriorates gradually or suddenly.
