This 2 part interactive workshop will lead you through each section of the Alzheimer’s Advance Directive and also offers an opportunity to explore with other individuals and their family members or partners the changes that may occur with a diagnosis of dementia. This program will be facilitated by Barbara Green, LICSW, who has many years’ experience counseling families through the changes and challenges of receiving and living with a dementia diagnosis.
