    1. There are many resources available to help you and your health care proxy develop a care plan. These are merely suggestions to get you thinking about possible scenarios and topics to discuss. I hope you found this blog informative, and urge you to share it with anyone who does not have a health care proxy. We always think it will never happen to us, but what if it does? It's best to be prepared!

      The article highlights the importance of what a good health proxy looks like and how they go about helping a patient in their most sensitive moments of health and later on in their lives. Potentially, this could be a good chance for a client's wishes to be fully respected by someone who knows of their values and preferences. It also encourages the reader to be prepared incase they are faced with this decision some day. Many members of the elder population are asked about healthcare proxies during the beginning of any hospitalization. More awareness of what a health proxy is and what social supports a patient can count on helps to assure quality care and dignity in health and death.

    2. The concept is founded on the autonomy of the individual. The ability of an individual to make choices lies at the core of the human personality. The notion of privacy enables the individual to assert and control the human element which is inseparable from the personality of the individual. The inviolable nature of the human personality is manifested in the ability to make decisions on matters intimate to human life. The autonomy of the individual is associated over matters which can be kept private. These are concerns over which there is a legitimate expectation of privacy. The body and the mind are inseparable elements of the human personality. The integrity of the body and the sanctity of the mind can exist on the foundation that each individual possesses an inalienable ability and right to preserve a private space in which the human personality can develop. Without the ability to make choices, the inviolability of the personality would be in doubt. Recognizing a zone of privacy is but an acknowledgment that each individual must be entitled to chart and pursue the course of development of personality. Hence privacy is a postulate of human dignity itself.
