Issues in managing the costs of caregiving, understanding the halachic status of a person with dementia, and deciding whether to put someone into a facility. Essentially the same shiur as seen at http://www.yutorah.org/lectures/lecture.cfm/801965/Rabbi%20Mordechai%20Torczyner/Medical%20Halachah:%20Issues%20in%20Dementia, but geared toward a beginner audience, and the audience questions are different from those in the other shiur. Please see your posek for practical guidance.
