Navigating the Unknown: Advance Care & Legal Planning for People with Dementia

May 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

A virtual conference for Caregivers, Healthcare Professionals and Families

As more people experience memory loss, planning before someone becomes affected by memory loss and decision-making capacity is critical. In this no-cost presentation, participants will learn about advance care planning and the importance of having conversations now. By taking action, individuals can communicate their preferences for care and express who they may want to provide support as their needs change. This session will explore legal planning, palliative care, hospice, and POLST (portable medical orders).
