Last edited: 24 Jul 2018 We attempt to control property rights, insurance, inheritance, wills and general tax affairs etc. However as a hospital visitor I've noticed that we seem to have very little control over our own end of life rights. Personally I've experienced a parent and relations ending up with strokes, Alzheimer's and cancer. None allowed for much quality of life. Once proud, capable individuals were left devoid of any dignity, in vulnerable situations and very often facing them alone. It would be classified as cruelty if an animal was treated in this way. Property rights, insurance, inheritance, wills and general tax affairs etc. will be relevant to many but end of life applies to all. Is it possible to make a living will in Ireland?
