Session 12 - Preparing for Changes Ahead
Part 2 - Decision Making
Respecting the expressed wishes of the person with dementia should guide all end-of-life care decisions. A guiding principle should be to uphold his dignity, privacy and safety.
When making decisions on behalf of another person, it is important to follow the person's wishes, if they are known. If they have not been communicated, knowing his values and beliefs can help you make a decision that most closely resembles the one he would have made.
