    Sep 20, 2016 | ABA Journal

    Despite having signed an advance directive drawn up by a lawyer to limit attempts to prolong her life if she became incapacitated, an Oregon woman suffering early onset Alzheimer's disease is being spoon-fed at a nursing home, the Mail Tribune newspaper of Medford, Oregon reports. When Bill Harris, of Ashland, Oregon, sued to stop the spoon-feeding, the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman Office opposed the challenge, saying the nursing facility must help his wife Nora Harris eat.
