Taboo Discussion - Life & Death With Dementia - A Choice We Chose Not To Discuss

Today we will devote the full two hour show to a conversation with a variety of people and thoughts of living and dying with dementia.  Should one have the ability to decide when they want to end their life?  If so, when and under what circumstances?  Hear from those living with the disease, care partners, a Doctor, a Hospice Worker, an Attorney and more.  My guess is you are going to be pretty surprised by what you hear during this conversation.  I know I was.

Please note, Alzheimers Speaks understands not everyone will appreciate let alone agree with all comments on this show.  So feel free to post your thoughts whatever they are. What questions do you have?  What thoughts of yours do you want heard?  We believe all voices need to be heard.  We only have one rule, that all comments be respectful.

Our goal is to get the topic off the taboo list.  It is our belief we need to learn more about how everyone deals with this diagnosis. What are their needs?  What are their concerns? How can we help live better with dementia?

Please note this is a prerecorded show.
