End of life care
A terminal diagnosis is one of the hardest times to come to terms with, but it’s important to make the most of the time you have left with the person you’re caring for.
If the person you’re caring for is able to make their own decisions and has full control of their mind, it’s really important that you talk with them about putting their affairs in order. Even more so if they have been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s as their condition will get worse with time.
Putting power of attorney in place and getting wills sorted will help to make life easier in the long run, as will keeping records and statements of everything involved in their care. This is so that if your loved one is living with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease you can show them the necessary documents to help explain why something is happening or why they may not be able to do certain tasks, like driving.
