Future Planning: Beyond Diagnosis
The session provides information on dementia, the way we communicate and how changes in communication can occur as a result of dementia.
This program provides guidance for people living with dementia, their family members and family carers to plan for the future, once they have come to terms with a diagnosis of dementia and understand the symptoms and impacts of dementia.
It includes topics such as accommodation and living arrangements, financial considerations, decision-making, planning health care, options for people in employment, and strategies for communicating and implementing plans.

Suitable for: People living with dementia and their family carers and family members. Participants should have a good understanding of dementia and feel ready to think about the future in detail.
