May is Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month...
There are a lot of conversations, questions and concerns surrounding the topics of Alzheimer's and overall brain health as we age. This month, we want to empower you with information to help you or a loved one who may be encountering an Alzheimer's or dementia diagnosis. Be on the lookout for blog articles that will cover:
- Alzheimer's Disease: Facts vs. Fiction
- Are You Predisposed To Alzheimer's Disease?
- The Difference Between Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia
- Planning for Incapacity
- Brain Health: Myths vs. Reality
While everyone should have an estate plan, it is especially important for families living with Alzheimer's disease. If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and you do not have estate planning documents like a will, Power of Attorney, or advance directive, please contact our office as soon as possible. Estate planning documents require the person who signs them to have the legal capacity to understand the documents' consequences. In most cases, someone who has just received a diagnosis of Alzheimer's can understand the meaning and importance of a given document and therefore has the legal capacity to sign it. However, the ability to understand the implications of legal documents may decline as the disease progresses.
We can guide you through all the legal ramifications surrounding an Alzheimer's diagnosis, including medical and asset protection planning, advance directives and guardianship. We understand what you are going through during this difficult time and are here to help.
Get the legal protection that adds peace of mind to you and your family. Call for a complimentary consultation at 260-969-1177.
