Decision making is the first part of the three big issues you need to deal with when helping an elderly loved one – especially someone with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. This episode is an introduction into the issues related to decision making including the documents that allow you to appoint your decision makers if you ever become incapacitated to the point you can’t make your own decisions and discusses what happens if you don’t have those documents if you ever become incapacitated.
I hope this helps. There are going to be more episodes about decision making coming out this week. Let me know what you think – send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Talk to you soon.
