When my grandpa had a massive stroke and was taken to hospital and it became clear he would not recover, my mom who had durable power became distraught because she had the full weight of the decision about any life support. Grandpa did not want life support. To help mom my brothers and I all signed the paperwork to share the weight with her. This eased her and allowed us all to be with Grandpa and follow his wishes until he passed 9 days later with no life support. Hard things are best done together.
