End-of-life choices not just for elderly
Gloucester Daily Times
---- — To the editor:
I read the letter to the editor by Sarah Ann Hacket (Times, Thursday, March 14) on making end-of-life care choices.
I gave a sermon at the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church on Feb. 24 on this subject and talked about the document from Aging with Dignity called “5 Wishes.”
I also did a reading by Fred Recklau on “Cure vs. Healing” and quoted from recent feature articles by Dr. Kiran Gupta and Ellen Goodman. You can find more information about this by doing a search on the web.
This is a very important subject to address before a crisis.
Everyone over the age of 18 should have a health care proxy, not just the elderly.
