The Conversation Project and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement have collaborated to create Your Conversation Starter Kit (For Families and Loved Ones of People with Alzheimer’s Disease or Other Forms of Dementia.)

This booklet is specifically designed to guide families and loved ones of people with Alzheimer’s Disease or another form of dementia regarding their conversations with their family members and loved ones about their end-of-life wishes and care. It includes both guidance and fill-in-the-blank questions in an easy-to-use workbook format. To be most effective, these issues should also be discussed with appropriate medical providers.  

The guide is available at the following web site:
