As a bioethicist, Viki Kind gets a lot of questions asking, "Did I do the right thing?" or "Is it time to.?" Her goal is to ensure caregivers make better decisions at the beginning so they aren't left with doubt and regret. Here are some typical questions she gets: I buried my mother and she wanted to be cremated; was I wrong? I don't know if I did the right thing when I told the doctor to take my husband off life support. Is it time to move my partner who has Parkinson's to a skilled nursing facility? Is it time for me to take my aunt's car keys away? There is an unrepresented patient and no conservators/guardians available, so who should make the decisions? I feel so guilty about … I think I made a mistake about ...
