Dementia: Determining Decision Making Capacity

This video discusses an important aspect of elderly care and managing a patient’s dementia: Determining decision-making capacity. This capacity is based on one’s physical and mental ability to provide food, clothing, and shelter; attend to physical needs; and manage finances. By watching this video, viewers learn how self-assessment, proxy reports, evaluating performance, and direct observation can help measure a loved one’s capacity and determine best options for their care.
