If you were diagnosed with Alzheimer's, what would you do?

As an end of life doula, I have had the opportunity to think about this a lot. My number one priority would be to make sure I could end my life on my own terms before my cognitive decline made that impossible.

That's why I am really excited that California's advocacy group, A Better Exit, is working on proposed changes to the current law. SB 1196 would:

Eliminate the requirement whereby a person must be within six months of death;

Include the option of an intravenous method for self-administering the life-ending drugs;

Make Medical Aid In Dying available to people with early to mid-stage dementia who have decision-making capacity.

If you or your loved one had severe cognitive decline, would you want these options so you could end your life with dignity?
