Program to focus on legal and financial planning for families dealing with Alzheimer’s

The Alzheimer’s Association will present a free program designed to help those affected by dementia, their care partners and family members to better understand the legal and financial issues that may impact them now and in the future. The two-part session will be held on Thursday, January 24th and Thursday, January 31st from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Alzheimer’s Association, 620 S. 76th Street, Suite 160, in Milwaukee.

The program will help families understand the importance of advance planning and being able to identify the steps to getting legal, financial and future care plans launched. Attendees will also acquire knowledge of specific legal issues, future care options and financial issues impacting individuals with dementia. The use of hands-on-tools for making timely plans will be explored and encouraged.

The information contained in the program is intended as an overview of important legal and financial issues and available options – it is not meant to be a substitute for professional legal or financial advice.
