Excellent NPR podcast about end of life advanced directive/living wills that a doctor has created that are geared to those of us that are most like to get Alzheimer’s.  The podcast also touches on end of life issues that Alzheimer’s families and patients face.

The On Point show is available for free on iTunes. I downloaded the show to my 9 year old iPod. Maybe others can assist on how to download to other more current devices like smart phones.

I just read this and it is a very poor written advance directive. It may be better then the standard but that is not saying much.
