We have been working with many of our clients who have aging family members. This can become a very challenging period. An important first step is to know the signs of dementia and be able to spot them when they occur with family members.
There are also important things to consider in an estate plan for people as they get older. In this article, we will discuss the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s and Estate Planning Tools to Assist with Changing Capacity.
We invited experts in these areas to share their knowledge in the first installment of our two-part Strategies for Aging Family Members Webinar Series.
