Death and Dementia: Alternate Approaches
Our panel will present alternate perspectives on end-of-life options for individuals diagnosed with dementia and answer questions from our audience. Speakers will include:
Kelly Bone in Florida was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 57. Having watched her mother suffer and succumb to Alzheimer’s, she is determined to end her life with dignity on her own terms. Kelly lives in Florida, where MAid is not legal, and is devoted to expanding U.S. laws on medical aid in dying to include patients with dementia. In all states where MAID is legal, patients are required to have full mental capacity. Kelly speaks openly and powerfully about Alzheimer’s disease and has given many interviews as a courageous advocate for reform.
