The Danish healthcare system is universal and based on the principles of free and equal access to healthcare for all citizens. The healthcare system offers high-quality services, the majority of which are financed by general taxes.

At the same time, I had a friend from Denmark whose grandfather had Alzheimer’s, but the ‘system’ wouldn’t take him in because he was too expensive. He was wandering naked in the snow. They must have provided some care to him, but according to the family it wasn’t nearly what he needed.

And I don't want to lay assisted suicide on my husband or kids, for psychological and legal reasons. My husband and I have discussed the issue and he agrees. I'm hoping Australian law will catch up as the boomers pass through (because that's going to be an epic disaster as few have saved a dime and there are so many), but I wouldn't mind flying to a different country, assuming they accept foreigners. I believe that in Washington and Oregon, you need to be a resident and have a short prognosis.
