The passing of time may seem like one of the only constants in life. Unfortunately for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia, as time goes on, so does cognitive impairment.
As the days pass, it becomes more and more difficult for our loved ones with dementia to make their own decisions regarding their health, lifestyle and wealth.
Luckily, the Alzheimer’s Association has created a brochure to help guide caregivers who are working with their loved ones to make legal plans for the future. Making legal decisions is important for anyone, but for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia, it is crucial. Health care, management of assets and guardianship all need to be discussed before things get too bad, so a person with dementia can participate.
This brochure provides information on how you can move forward together in all aspects of life, assured that you and your loved one are equipped to deal with whatever legal problems arise.
