The Barraged Boomer’s Guide to ALZHEIMER’S PLANNING
Even if your family is not dealing with Alzheimer’s or another progressive dementia, it is wise to plan for the possibility of a future diagnosis. Planning won’t be a wast of time, as it can be encompassed by incapacity and other end-of-life planning.
If you are new to caregiving, you may just want to know where to start. If you have been a caregiver for a while, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed and desperate for answers and assistance.
This guide provides some basic – yet important – information on Alzheimer’s, answers some questions about appropriate levels of care as the disease progresses, offers suggestions for respite care, and discusses various ways to help finance the care for a loved one suffering with Alzheimer’s.
