Are you prepared for long-term care of a loved one who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s?
The most important thing for dealing with an Alzheimer’s diagnosis in either you or a loved one is having a well drafted power of attorney to cover financial decisions. Make sure it includes expanded powers instead of just having a vague power of attorney. The second most important document is a medical power of attorney with end of life plans. The final is a personal care plan to describe long term care.
