No one really wants to think about what should happen to them if they get ill or have an accident. Many people don’t even have a will in the event of their death, yet alone think about their wishes should their lives turn and they are unable to mentally/physically function.
As you probably can see from my profile, I volunteer with the Red Cross. Essentially, I take cancer patients to Oncology for their radiotherapy treatment. During their time with me, I am their confidant, their support and the one they rely on in this time of need. Although, most patients get through treatment and go on to leading a fulfilling life, there are some cases that aren’t so lucky.
What Is A Living Will?
This is a way of communicating healthcare desires when he or she is unable to speak for themselves. It is a course of guidance to the caregivers as to how the patient, as an individual, would wish to be treated. This may forbid certain treatments and interventions. It may include certain life-style choices for which the patient enjoyed prior to the disability or illness.
I published my Living Will as a hub. I hope it might inspire others to consider it for themselves. Take a look, if you want. I hope it might give you some food for thought.
Yep, I will look at yours. It isnt so much publising, I just want to get the word out there, so it might help others. They are brilliant and very useful. I call it an 'evil' cos no one wants to think about potential disability x
Thanks. It's difficult, isnt it... People create hubs because they want to share news/experiences, maybe generate some food for thought and debate. Where does the hub end and the forum start? Does this mean we aren't allowed to discuss what is important to us, because we 'hubbed' it? x
Im not in this for advertising revenue - it would be nice, but I dont actually believe you can make money out of this. This is not my priority. I am doing this because it helps me express myself.
Thinking....Maybe, I should forget about hubbing and just post on the forum?
Set yourself the target of writing 30 hubs over a 30 day period. There is no pressure to meet a specific date; you set it yourself. As it also lists all new hub URLs from those who are participating in it; it is a great place to notice incoming works.
I am all for World peace and everyone living harmoniously with the World around us. However, since the beginning of history there has always been conflict in one way or another which makes me feel that disharmony...
If you’re familiar with the term, you might be one of us. Does the world need “evil” as much as it requires good? Playing politics takes all kinds. The motivations of the rich are parallel the desires...
