If you were appointed Patient Advocate for a close relative (parent, sibling, spouse, child, etc.) would you be able to carry out their wishes, including a wish to end their life if...? Would age or disability make a difference in your ability to serve as their patient advocate?

This is an ambiguous question because you haven't specified what goes after the "if."
However, I've been patient advocate for my mother and my husband. I was able to carry out their do not resuscitate wishes with no ethical problems.
What is your answer.
