End of Life Issues for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities

Wed, 28 Aug, 2013 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Time Zone: America/New_York
Local Time: Wed, 28 Aug, 2013 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Growing older is a difficult process for everyone – having an intellectual or physical disability can many times make the situation even more complicated for the individual and their family.  Jennifer Dresen and Wendy Ginther are co-directors of the Center for Health and Wellness at The Arc San Francisco, which also provides a Senior Services program.  Jennifer and Wendy will go over the history of treatments and common aging trends. They will dive into how to deal with the difficult decisions surrounding guardianship and conservatorships, capacity determination to make these challenging medical decisions and ethical issues regarding the use and withdrawal of life support.  Case studies will be used to show ways to support end-of-life care pain management and understand the value of life.  Please join us to learn how to cope better with this difficult stage of life.
