Alzheimer’s Planning

Alzheimer’s disease and dementia affect many individuals and their families at different stages in the aging process. Specialized planning is essential to ensure the well-being of everyone involved, including caregivers. We can put an end to the feelings of uncertainty and help you navigate the overwhelming options and decisions you may be facing. 

In short, Alzheimer’s disease affects a person’s ability to understand and appreciate the consequences of their actions. As a caregiver, it can be difficult to make rational decisions on behalf of someone facing the disease. When planning for your future with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, you must consider the following to ensure the greatest quality of life:

  • Who will manage my property and finances when I can’t?
  • What legal documents are necessary to ensure my wishes are followed as my disease progresses? Are my current legal documents (if any) up to date?
  • How do I avoid becoming a burden on my family and loved ones because of my disease?
  • What are my long-term care preferences: home care, assisted living, or nursing care?
  • How much will long-term care cost? Is it possible to avoid running out of money if I need long-term care?
  • Will my spouse have money left after my care?
