Don't Hesitate When the Diagnosis is Alzheimer's, Dementia, Stroke or Memory Loss

Grandma in GardenNot too long ago, I met with Frank and Joy (not their real names).  They described a problem that is very common.  Many of my clients are wrestling with the same issue.  So I thought I would share their story about their mother, "Grandma Ella".

Ella no longer has the ability to live safely on her own. For example, not long ago, Ella put a teakettle on the stove to make some tea and forgot that she had done so -- until she returned to the kitchen much later to discover the teakettle had boiled dry and was red-hot.  Sometimes Ella forgets to take her medications; at other times she forgets that she has already taken her medications and in her confusion may take double doses of her medications.

Frank and Joy came to me looking for an experienced Elder Law Attorney to help them with financial issues and to help them plan for the possibility Ella may need nursing home care at some point in the future.  After meeting with both of them and Ella, we were able to put together a good plan that allowed Ella to qualify for financial assistance to help pay for an apartment in a supportive living facility.
