Event Details

Dementia is a devastating condition affecting an estimated 5.8 million older adults in the United States. It is essential that people are aware of the planning necessary to ensure they receive the kind of care they want and deserve in advance of dementia diagnosis. Amy will review the options available to those planning for a dementia diagnosis and demonstrate two new online tools to help document care preferences. This interactive session will leave participants with concrete steps they can take to support their families and the individuals they serve.
