Stay in Control of Your Life and Care During a Dementia Diagnosis

Identify your personal values and provide clear care instructions to your loved ones as you deal with a dementia diagnosis.

A dementia diagnosis can be devastating. Documenting your preferences can help ensure that you get care that is consistent with your values and priorities.

The Dementia Values & Priorities Tool will help you identify your personal values and care wishes so that you stay in control. You will be able to provide clear care instructions to your loved ones and take the burden off of them to make difficult decisions, when you can no longer make those decisions yourself.

Every journey is different. Whether you want all available treatments to keep you alive no matter the circumstances, or you want to avoid curative or life-saving treatments and receive comfort care only so you can be allowed to die naturally, it is important to document your wishes now.
