November is National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

During National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, it is important to recognize the multifaceted challenges that families face when dealing with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. This month serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of addressing the unique legal needs of individuals affected by Alzheimer’s and taking proactive steps to protect their well-being, happiness, and assets.

Alzheimer’s disease can gradually diminish an individual’s capacity to make informed decisions, underscoring the need for comprehensive legal preparations. This includes creating powers of attorney to appoint trusted decision-makers and ensure the person’s wishes are respected even as the disease progresses. Moreover, estate planning becomes crucial in ensuring that assets are distributed according to the individual’s preferences and providing for the financial security of their loved ones. Using our Dementia & Healthcare Quiz ensures that the family is on the same page before these decisions need to be made.

The financial impact of Alzheimer’s care is substantial, with long-term care costs potentially depleting family resources. If you or your loved ones are grappling with Alzheimer’s-related legal concerns or need guidance on proactive planning, please reach out to our office.
