In my last blog I shared the link to the Five Wishes, a legally binding document describing your end-of-life decisions.  In this blog, I share two additional dementia and end-of-life tools.  These are from Compassion and Choices organization, which is a fabulous and important organization for us all to know and support.

The Dementia Values and Priorities Tool allows you to create your own set of instructions for your loved ones. Once signed it is also legally binding.  I suggest using this as a supplement to your Five Wishes, as it has more specific language regarding dementia.

The Dementia Decoder helps you prepare for medical appointments with a customized list of questions. It can be stressful to go to doctor appointments, and having a clear list of questions will help lower your stress levels.

You will find my book Parkinson’s: A Love Story with Dementia for Dessert on Amazon.  Your feedback and reviews are most welcome.
