Dementia Conversations: Driving, Doctor Visits, Legal & Financial Planning
Conversations with family members who are showing signs of dementia can be challenging and uncomfortable. The fear or lack of awareness that may accompany these conversations can result in delays that have serious consequences for the entire family. This workshop offers tips on how to have honest and caring conversations with family members about going to the doctor, when to stop driving, and making legal and financial plans.
