This recorded session was presented as part of the live seminar and webcast, Practice Transitions: Baby Boomers and Beyond!, recorded on May 5, 2017, in Seatac, WA. If you attended the live seminar or webcast and reported CLE credits, you cannot also report credits from watching or listening to this recording.

In this presentation, look at a relatively new way of planning for a future with Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia using Mental Health Advance Directives (MHADs). Typically, MHADs have been used by clients with mental disabilities like bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, and severe depression. Clients with these illnesses tend to have periods of relative stability followed by de-compensation. However, people with dementia tend to get increasingly worse rather than cycling up and down. This session explores how this difference affects planning and future decision making about Alzheimer’s care.

Presenter: Lisa Brodoff – Associate Professor of Law, Seattle University, Seattle, WA
