Join us on May 25, 2022, at noon for the next McGill Cares webcast to support informal caregivers. During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster explores topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia.   

Having Conversations about Advance Care Planning 

Tamara Sussman, PhD, is Associate Professor at the McGill School of Social Work. She has worked with adults and families to manage health-related issues in both hospital and community settings for more than 10 years. Professor Sussman’s research focuses on how health services and systems impact older adults and their family members. 

Professor Sussman will speak about how to broach the sensitive topic of end-of-life planning with someone in the early stages of dementia.  She will discuss research that shows that having these conversations can empower people living with dementia and help support families and friends.
