As evidenced in the Terri Schiavo case that made national headlines, having a living will is an essential element in ensuring that the way in which you would like to spend your last days will be respected. It informs both family and doctors of your medical treatment preferences in specific situations. An ethical will is a complementary text that communicates personal values, beliefs, blessings, and advice to relatives and to future generations. It can be more meaningful to friends and family than any material possession you could bequeath to them. Together, living and ethical wills ensure that your wishes and hopes are "on the record," not to be lost, ignored, or forgotten. Offering practical and inspirational advice for people at any stage of life, Ethical and Living Wills includes: --Three recommended writing approaches to capturing our feelings for posterity --Expert information for understanding the legal and practical issues involved in documenting your medical care and treatment preferences in commonly occurring situations --Advice on when to distribute both ethical and living wills -- Tips to protect the legacy you leave in an ethical will-preparing and caring for the document you create

About the Author:

Barry K. Baines, M.D., is Medical Director of Ucare, Minnesota, and Associate Medical Director of Hospice of the Twin Cities. He is the co-founder and CEO of The Legacy Center, an organization dedicated to preserving stories, values, and meaning for individuals, communities, and organizations. Dr. Baines lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

From Publishers Weekly:

Doctor and hospice director Barry K. Baines guides the dying on taking charge of the emotional legacies they leave behind in Ethical Wills: Putting Your Values on Paper. Defining an ethical will as "a vehicle for clarifying and communicating the meaning in our lives to our families and communities," Baines draws on an ancient practice that he has put to use in hospice work with more than 3,000 people as they prepared for death. A benefit to the dying, their loved ones and people not facing an imminent death but wanting to clarify and communicate their experience, ethical wills can be letters, lists, confessions, requests and a host of other kinds of communication. Baines discusses their history, their significance and how to make them, with numerous examples.
