End of life planning is a difficult subject for many. So difficult, that the majority (64%) of people in the United States has no living will, HCPOA or estate will in place at the end of their lives. 

this means is that the burden of making difficult medical and legal decisions for the incapacitated person falls to the family and the state court systems, often at great psychological, emotional, and financial expense for both.

Please explain and apply how each of the core values of Saint Leo University are fostered and cultivated by the personal decision of each of us to take responsibility to make certain these legal instruments are in place before the necessity of them comes to be. Please apply specifically each of the core values of Community, Respect, Personal Development, Responsible Stewardship, and Integrity to our topic of end of life decision making.
