Dementia and Dying in a Digital Age

June 13 @ 2:00 pm 3:15 pm EDT

Randi J. Siegel, MBA

Webinar Description

It’s been more than 30 years since the Patient Self Determination Act codified the use of advance directives in hospitals and other medical facilities. While traditional advance directives still serve an important role for your clients, they do have their limitations.

Many directives do not address issues of cognitive decline, a growing concern among seniors. They also do not take into consideration drastic changes in health, such as a terminal diagnosis, which can cause clients to reconsider some treatments.

During this webinar, Randi Siegel, MBA, will outline innovations in advance care planning that give your clients more nuanced control over their health care. You’ll also learn about resources to help your clients discuss their wishes with their loved ones.

Topics Covered:

  • Dementia Directives: A new form of advance directive to help clients take control of their healthcare if they develop Alzheimer’s or dementia. You’ll learn about the different versions that are available and how they help your clients.
  • POLST: An advance care planning tool for clients who are seriously ill or have advanced frailty. You’ll learn how this document differs from an advance directive and when it is appropriate for your clients. 
  • Medical Aid in Dying: One in five Americans now live in a state where they have access to Medical Aid in Dying. You’ll learn about where it’s legal and what this means for your clients.
  • Conversations with Clients: Resources to help clients choose their health care agent and discuss their health care wishes. You’ll learn how to help clients communicate their wishes so they can minimize confusion, doubt, and stress during medical emergencies.
