Webinar: FTD Care Planning with Essential Legal Documents

Navigating care after an FTD diagnosis can be like facing rough, uncharted waters. This webinar provides information on ways to prepare for this challenging journey, highlighting the use of two essential documents: power of attorney and advance directives. Please join AFTD as we discuss advance care planning in FTD with guest experts Bryan J. Adler, Esq., a certified elder law attorney from the Rothkoff Law Group, and Cynthia Clyburn, MSW, LCSW, from the University of Pennsylvania’s Neurology Center.

  • What power of attorney and advance directives can and can’t do legally
  • Resources and tips to help caregivers form a successful FTD advance care plan
