Swiss group to allow assisted dying for elderly who are not terminally ill

• theguardian.com

A Swiss organisation that helps people take their own lives has voted to extend its services to elderly people who are not terminally ill.

Exit added "suicide due to old age" to their statutes at an annual general meeting held over the weekend, allowing people suffering from psychological or physical problems associated with old age the choice to end their life.

Assisted dying is legal in Switzerland and technically even a healthy young person could use such services. However, organisations involved in this work set their own internal requirements, which differ from group to group.
