NYTimes: Dementia Specific Advance Medical Directive

The NY Times has an article, “One Day Your Mind May Fade. At Least You’ll Have a Plan,” about a dementia specific advance medical directive, created by Dr. Barak Gaster, an internist at the University of Washington School of Medicine.  According to the NY Times article,  “(i)n simple language, it maps out the effects of mild, moderate and severe dementia, and asks patients to specify which medical interventions they would want — and not want — at each phase of the illness.”
