Posted August 6, 2013

 

When your loved one is in the later stages of Alzheimer’s, it can be hard to predict longevity. Begin to discuss end-of-life options—do you want to treat every illness or infection, or focus on comfort care? What would your loved one want (and did they express their wishes in an advance directive)? Hospice can be a great resource, and your loved one may be eligible for that program now or soon.
