Few attributes of personhood are more zealously protected than self-determination, and few fears more troubling than the fear of losing independence. For people with dementia this can be particularly intense.

She’ll discuss ways professionals can support individuals living with dementia—and their families—in making decisions, even in the context of diminished decision-making capacity.
