personal reasons; in most cases, people commit Suicide when they are suffering from mental disorders or financial troubles. Suicide can be avoided since there are plenty of solutions available for the person. How does a living will work, and when does it become of legal effect? A living will is a document where you state what are your wishes about your healthcare when they are in their deathbed or incapacitated. In your living you could also designate a person to make those decisions for you, keeping in mind what would be the best for you. Having a living will clearly stating your wishes will take that burden and guilt out of your family's shoulders when you are unable to tell them and the doctors what you want, and that makes sure that your wishes become true. Your living will only come into effect if you are in a vegetative state or irreversible coma. What is a health care directive, and how does it work? A health care directive is a composed record that states to others of your desires about your human services. It enables you to name a person to choose on the off chance that you unfit

They should be no less than 18 years of age to influence wellbeing to mind mandate. STEP 3 I think that deciding whether a person dies or not is not a decision that should not be put in another person’s hands. In any case, I believe that a will is quite essential to clear out issues on what a person wants. The measures to be taken to ensure one is set for their end of life experience are to make sure your will or wills are clearly stated. One’s advocate(s) notified the procedures clearly explained. With having all of one’s priorities to their health and assets set, one can rest assured their wishes are properly carried out. While there will be heartache and tears, there will be no confusion as to one’s last desires. This gives not only one’s self the ability to go in peace but also for those who one leaves behind. They can rest easy knowing everything done was according to your wishes and that they made sure one's wishes would have been carefully carried out. An individual’s family and friends will know that they are at peace, and they, in some way, helped to make that happen. Regardless I think that when a person is in a vegetative state, then its only right for any close relative, be it a spouse or parent to relives them of the agony of having to live a life like a dead person. Regarding my actions, I would apply the Saint Leo University Values of Respect and integrity in trying to honor Nancy Cruzan’s wishes. She told her friend that if she got sick or in an accident, then she wouldn’t want to live, not unless she was living at least half of her life. I would respect her wish as it was something that she wanted, and instead of continuing to make her suffer and eat through a tube, I would prefer the doctors to remove the tube so that she could rest in peace instead of living as if she was dead. Secondly, I would incorporate the value of the

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
