There is... But it's messy... My Grandma was in denial that he had Alzheimer's, and finally last year she agreed to make an advanced directive, when he was semi-able to make decisions/understand things. This was done without anybody there who had medical knowledge, and was able explain the scope of the choices that were made. So essentially it is in essence a family decision now, and we are trying to find what is the "right" way to handle this humanly, morally ect. With that, my self and my mom are turned to to interpret/explain the medical jargon as presented, and to assist with a weighted decision. It sucks, bad.
