Some people assume that if you have dementia you cannot understand information or make choices. This exclusion happens within health care institutions and also in the larger community. "

The Canadian Centre for Elder Law, in in collaboration with the Alzheimer Society of BC, developped a set of resources on the decision-making rights of people living with dementia:  a booklet, available in English, French, Traditional Chinese and Punjabi, and three short videos.
