My Hospice Care Decision for Dotty

Posted Feb 24 2013 12:00am
My Hospice Care Decision  for Dotty
Let me start by saying that I had a crystal clear understanding of the types of care that Dotty wanted at the end of her life. We had these discussion more than 20 years prior to her death.
Dotty did not want to be  resuscitated , put on an machines that prolonged her life for weeks or even days, and she did not want her life extended artificially.
I had an advance directive, and Power of Attorney, that gave me the legal power to make decisions concerning Dotty's end of life care. Or, for any care decision she could not make on her own. These documents were signed and executed well in advance. 
Dotty's clear wish was to die at home and she wanted  Hospice and Palliative  care.
