As of January 1, 2011, the “Baby Boomer” generation began turning 65, which has historically been the average age of retirement. However, due to the state of the economy, 42% of Baby Boomers have delayed retirement, and 25% claim they will never retire as they simply cannot afford to do so. As a result, many people are risking their health to provide for themselves, and are not prepared for possible unforeseen circumstances that may arise, such as a sudden disability, incapacity, or even terminal illness. In these situations, the person is often left at the mercy of the hospital staff as they are unable to make decisions for themselves.

To ensure that your rights and decisions regarding medical care are followed, a living will can be created that allows you to provide directives to medical staff and family members regarding the use of feeding tubes, other artificial nourishment, and life sustaining procedures. Contact the attorneys at Bloch & Chapleau to assist you in making sure your wishes are documented before an unexpected event occurs.
