Summary or Abstract : Completion of health care proxies is critical for dementia patients regardless of cultural and linguistic background. This study aimed to determine the feasibility of a bilingual health care proxy counseling program. It was conducted at a geriatric psychiatry clinic where 148 patients with dementia (English-speaking and Spanish-speaking) and their proxies participated. It was anticipated that capacity and motivation to appoint a health care proxy would not differ between the two groups and that rates of proxy completion would increase after counseling for each group. Counseling was delivered in the patient's language of preference using techniques to maximize their working-memory. Findings indicate that both groups are equally likely to participate in research, have capacity for counseling participation, and appoint a health care proxy after counseling. These findings establish the feasibility of the counseling program, with an increase in completion rates to 92 for Spanish-speakers and 84 for English-speakers after counseling participation.
