Think about the elderly and the use of medical resources.

Think about the elderly and the use of medical resources. A medical living will dictates the amount of care desired should you be unable to communicate your wishes to the medical community. As an example, if you are comatose and stop breathing, a living will can dictate to either conduct CPR or to withhold CPR. It also covers such things as feeding tubes, medications for pain, surgeries, etc. Many people who take the time to complete a living will are often frustrated when the medical community ignores their wishes. Why do you think that the medical community would chose to ignore a living will? Have you made a living will? Do your parents or aging relatives have a living will? If not why not, or if you do have one, does the medical community have a current copy?
