Planning Ahead

Knowledge of what to expect in the journey ahead is essential in mapping out the best possible care for a person with dementia. During the early stages of dementia, family caregivers can be overwhelmed by what’s happening now, without planning ahead for the challenges to come during the later stages of dementia.

How might we lay the groundwork for advance care planning early on? What are solutions that aid in family decision-making about a loved one’s health, now and in the future?
