Advance directive and legal planning

An advance directive is a written or spoken expression of will that specifies the wishes for good care and rehabilitation, commonly emphasizing the wishes for end-of-life care. With the advance directive a person can appoint someone to make certain decisions for themselves in case they no longer can.

The Alzheimer Society of Finland has published an advance directive form which allows you to express your will regarding your personal treatment and care.

This has been an important part of the Society's advocacy work for years now, as it ensures the best possible quality of life for the person with memory illness, based on his/her own wishes and needs.

Society's work for legal planning was introduced in 27th Alzheimer Europe Conference in Berlin, Germany (2017).
