Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disease. The rate of decline varies person to person. Therefore, you must consider the healthcare and financial decisions you must make now – as well as in the future to ensure YOUR wishes are met.
Advanced planning should begin at diagnosis so you can participate as much as possible and help limit family members from making important decisions on your behalf during a crisis period.
Why do you need an Attorney?
To settle legal matters such as:
- Identifying and completing legal documents (wills, trusts, deeds).
- Interpret state laws.
Making plans for medical and treatment decisions.
- How does the patient want their wishes carried out?
Making plans for finances and property.
- How to preserve assets while caring for a loved one.
- Am I eligible for government aid?
- Naming another person to make decisions on your behalf when you longer can.
