Live 11am EST, 10am CST, 9am MST, 8am PST, 4pm London time
Today we will devote the full two hour show to a conversation with a variety of people and thoughts of living and dying with dementia. Should one have the ability to decide when they want to end their life? If so, when and under what circumstances? Hear from those living with the disease, care partners, a Doctor, a Hospice Worker, an Attorney and more. My guess is you are going to be pretty surprised by what you hear during this conversation. I know I was.
Please note, Alzheimer’s Speaks understands not everyone will appreciate let alone agree with all comments on this show. So feel free to call in and join the conversation.
Our only rule is that all comments be respectful.
Our goal is to get the topic off the taboo list. It is our belief we need to learn more about how everyone deals with this diagnosis. What are their needs? What are their concerns? How can we help live better with dementia?
What questions do you have? What thoughts of yours do you want heard? Call in and join the conversation or use the chat box to let us know your thoughts. (714) 364-4757 or listen in via you computer by CLICKING HERE
