Whether family members can make that choice on behalf of such a patient is highly debatable. One the one hand, keeping such a patient alive imposes emotional/mental/financial suffering on the family members. On the other hand, the patient might still want to live on, except that he/she is unable to communicate such a desire. Very contentious stuff but nonetheless good topic for discussion/analysis.

My ideal take is anyone can opt for euthanasia when he is still sober under condition, like to elect it in the event that he is bedridden / unable to communicate for more than 12/18/24/etc months after trying to recover.
Personally, my husband and I gave the family the instruction of in the event that any of us is bedridden, the max period that is allowed for home care is 12 months. After that period if still condition remains, then just send to facilities to free everyone to live their own lives as normal as possible.
