At Mayhone Elder Law, we help our clients answer three key questions:
- What happens if I die?
- What happens if I don’t die, but become incapacitated, incompetent, or disabled?
- What happens if the diagnosis is dementia?
Dementia creates an additional layer of long-term care planning needs and in many instances, time is of the essence.
Dementia is a collective term used to describe various symptoms of cognitive decline, such as forgetfulness. It is a symptom of several underlying diseases and brain disorders. Dementia is not a single disease in itself, but a general term to describe symptoms of impairment in memory, communication and thinking. Whether you or a loved one have a dementia diagnosis, or you’re planning for the future, we are here to help!
It is a huge misconception that all dementias are the same. This couldn’t be further from the truth!
A proper diagnosis is the most important thing you can do if you or a loved one is displaying symptoms of a cognitive impairment.
The dementia that most of us hear the most is Alzheimer’s Disease. But without getting a proper diagnosis, you or your loved one may miss out on the most appropriate treatment.
