Whether it’s dementia, a developmental disability, a brain injury, or mental illness: many disabilities influence decision-making.  Unfortunately, this can mean well-meaning others override important decisions, and that presents compelling complications for both advocate and survivor, especially in long-term care.  Who decides if a “vulnerable adult” can have sex?  Does an advocate need power-of-attorney permission to work with a survivor?  What if a guardian is abusive? This interactive presentation is designed to provide tips, tools and techniques the advocate can use to navigate these complications and support the survivor in making authentic, meaningful decisions.
