If a person has had a life threatening heart attack or stroke, or other serious health issue, the hospital emergency room will likely make heroic efforts to save that persons life. They will be put on a respirator (a machine that will breathe for them and will cause the heart to continue to beat). Many times, the doctor will be aware that a stroke victim’s brain is so swollen in parts, he/she will inform the family that they can do a certain amount of things to keep the patient alive, but the patient is “brain dead”. This means that they can keep the patient alive, but the brain will never function again. This is the time when the medical staff and your family really needs to know what you want to have done.

If you and your elder law attorney have completed a Living Will Bucks County, there will be no doubt. If you want heroic efforts, they will do it. If you want to be allowed to pass on, they can remove life saving machines, and you can peacefully go to your eternal rest.
