Room exists to debate measures intended to solve the nation’s health care quandaries and ensure that Americans wind up healthier for the efforts.
But let’s hope the American public doesn’t fall for the same trick twice as the topic of end-of-life care arises. I’m hedging that we won’t. Increasingly, many of us are caring for aging parents, experiencing firsthand the struggle to make decisions for loved ones when that person can no longer voice their own wishes about care. more
