How It Works
What Does This Tool Do?
The Values & Priorities Tool allows you to identify certain markers that are critical to you, such as no longer recognizing loved ones, becoming angry or violent or spending days confined to a bed. As your dementia diagnosis progresses, you maintain the option of adjusting these markers before losing the ability to do so. After answering a series of questions and adding your own personalized markers, you will have the opportunity to print, download or email a customized amendment to your advance directive, specific to a dementia diagnosis.
What is the Result?
Your choices will be compiled into a Dementia Healthcare Directive Addendum that includes your specific instructions to give to your medical providers, healthcare facilities, and family. You should share this important document with your trusted healthcare proxy, your loved ones and your medical team.
