Seniorhelpdesk.com Healthcare Blog by JoNel Aleccia and Kaiser Health News

Treading into ethically and legally uncertain territory, a New York end-of-life agency has approved a new document that lets people stipulate in advance that they don’t want food or water if they develop severe dementia.

Spouse's Elective Share

SPOUSE’S ELECTIVE SHARES

March 2018

By Carl A. Glad, Partner, Law Offices of Kurt M. Ahlberg LLC
