No I am not speaking of wills and things that center around *that* end. I mean once we (the progressives) progress beyond the MCI stage, that will more or less be the end, at least in my opinion. My speech will be gone and odds are high that physical issues will become a more pervasive problem. But more than almost any of it, the memory. "Me".
So what have you done to prepare for that day/moment/whatever? in my case I am taking legal care of my wife/caregiver to derail any family BS, also since my aphasia is getting worse, its logical to assume normal avenues of speech will be beyond me, as will most if not all advanced forms of entertainment. So to prepare my wife and I are working out non-verbal methods of communication, I have cards printed up that can speak for me when I cannot speak for myself (explains who I am and what is wrong and most importantly, my wifes contact info), the house is slowly becoming baby-proofed (along with memory goes humility). I am making sure that I have plenty of brain-dead entertainment (anything from Nickelodeon is a good start), etc on tap, so when the day comes and I can't make a choice, any choice I make will be something mellow enough for me.
Stuff like that...but I want to know whats missing, what else can *I* the patient do to prepare for that day?
