The Challenge of Aging
This is a (2) part Project with one file submission
This assignment opportunity will help you think about and plan for your decision regarding life support. This is certainly a personal decision, but it is a very important decision that could help your family and doctors regarding your wishes should you experience a life threatening illness, accident or health issue in which you cannot communicate. We always think that someone else will be injured, but that someone else could be YOU!
Since we never know when a tragedy or illness can strike, your assignment is to watch the video below (link.) Once you have thought about the video, complete the form that I have attached (or find one on the Internet that you like better.) Some of you may already have a Living Will and advanced directive. Remember, you WILL be kept alive unless you make your wishes known. DO IT NOW. College is about making life changing decisions. Make this one for yourself and your family. If you have never discussed your final wishes with your family, take the time to do it now. We can all express our wishes.
This is a HONOR assignment so be honest. If you want to complete the forms for your family and have had 2 witnesses sign it, make a copy and give it to the person you want responsible. Keep the original in a safe place, remember it can always be changed at any time. There is no grade for this part of the assignment. It is only intended to help you.
Assignment: Watch the video. The LAST slide of your power point presentation should contain a paragraph or so on what you thought about the video and why. Will it help you make a decision on prolonging life?
