"Based on court records, personal interviews, and a firsthand vantage point, Unplugged chronicles the extraordinary medical advances that allow us to live longer, healthier lives, but can also make it confoundedly difficult to die. Colby discusses current laws and proposed legislation that affect our ability to make end-of-life decisions and provides insights into decisions we may face about elderly family members, including resuscitation, feeding tubes, and dementia. A portrait of the overwhelming pain that often engulfs families confronting end-of-life decisions, his book also offers tips for writing living wills and an overview of hospice care."--BOOK JACKET.
