Making plans for the future

The Cognitive Decline Partnership Centre in Sydney, together with HammondCare and Alzheimer’s Australia, have just launched some resources to help people with dementia who are needing to make plans for their future.

There’s a workbook that you can print off and fill in, which is designed to help guide conversations about decision-making, finances, health and care decisions.

There are also four brochures titled, ‘Supporting a person to make their own decisions’, ‘ Can they decide for themselves’, ‘When you need to make a decision for someone’, and ‘Who will speak for you if you can’t?’.

The resources are well set out and easy to read – definitely worth a look.
