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. The ACP+D presentation is designed to educate people who are curious about what they can do to prepare themselves in the event of a dementia diagnosis and/or are caring for someone who has already been diagnosed. The presentation covers:

  • a bit about dementia
  • how to get started on your Advance Directive
  • dementia-specific information and forms to accompany an Advance Directive
  • The importance of the health care “agent”


Offered virtually via Zoom
