Advanced Care Planning for Dementia

Talks/Lectures

Advance Care Planning is a process that takes time and active reflection. With a diagnosis of dementia, it gets more difficult to reflect on goals for end-of-life care. ACP+D presentations are designed to educate people who have either received a diagnosis of dementia or are caring for someone who has. We’ll cover the importance of starting ACP early, the critical role a health care agent will play throughout the journey, how to match goals for care with stages and symptoms of the disease, forms to help you start the conversation, and how to be a strong advocate for yourself & your loved one. Participants will receive a folder with helpful resources and two official forms to complete the ACP process.
