Do Not Resuscitate Orders
This section of WebCafe surveys some of the many practical areas which may need to be considered when moving into and through 'The Dying Time'.
This selection of resources is by no means exhaustive; nor will it prescribe or describe, because what feels right for one may not be right for someone else. We are not lawyers or physicians. We are presenting areas which we think are important to consider and address. Laws and customs vary by state and country, and you will need to familiarize yourself with your local regulations and resources when making your plans. There is much available information, and the pathway each journey takes is very personal.
