How much medical care would you want if you had Alzheimer's disease or another type of dementia?

In collaboration with experts in the fields of geriatrics, neurology, and palliative care, Dr. Barak Gaster has developed an advance care directive specifically designed to support decision making in families dealing with dementia. 

Dr. Gaster will present this directive and discuss how these kinds of documents can help plan for and improve care.
