Hi Alzheimer's Society, I need some help with a problem relating to my friend with dementia and cannot find any reference to it on the forum. After several years of independent living with this condition my good friend moved into a high dependency unit. I have POA on the finances by the way but not on health. Although prior to this he had agreed with a DNR notice when he was admitted to the home he went against this and had maintained that position. His doctor does not agree and is asking the home to get me to write and say that the DNR notice should apply. Although I believe his former self wouldn't have wanted to be resuscitated its obvious that he can no longer make this decision for himself. He had been a priest all his life and always said he wanted what God had planned for him and that didn't include human intervention. So, apparently I have to write something... But which way to go, I really don't know.
