A Cambridge Education

(Page 2 of 2)

The conversation reached a crescendo when an attendee asked the attorney if the lady could actually force her husband to comply with his medication regime. The attorney’s response was thoughtful and measured, but he effectively said that if the husband had not been deemed incapable of making such decisions, he still had every right to do so.

The attorney then extolled the attendees to take advantage of this conversation by having a Board of Director’s discussion with their family members. Try to make sure that the adults in your family have their own Advanced Directives and checklist in place, but also that they memorialize their thoughts on their wishes if the time comes when they can no longer easily share them with loved ones. These details can be as specific as your thoughts on long-term care placement and how many times you might want to have your hair cut.

Ah, Cambridge. How much I have learned in your hallowed halls.
