This very sad case shows the importance of a Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare. The LPA allows you to appoint someone that you trust (an 'Attorney') to make decisions about your Health and Welfare, should you be mentally incapable of making those decisions yourself. This includes the right to make decisions regarding life sustaining treatment, such as turning off a life support machine.
