Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disease that over time destroys memory, thinking skills and, eventually, the ability to carry out even the simplest of tasks. According to recent estimates, anywhere from 2.4 to 4.5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. These numbers are expected to grow, given that Americans are living longer than ever before and the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease often appear around the age of 60.
Caring for a victim of Alzheimer’s disease can be financially and emotionally devastating. At Jones Elder Law, we understand what you are going through and are dedicated to helping the victims of Alzheimer’s disease receive the best possible care, as well as easing the financial and emotional burden on victims’ loved ones.
If you or a loved one is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, we can show you a number of ways to prepare for future financial and healthcare needs. We can design a plan capable of providing the best possible level of care, together with the protection of hard-earned family assets. We can also help with the application for and procurement of government assistance, such as Medicaid and/or Veterans Benefits.
In addition, we can utilize tools such as caregiver agreements and irrevocable trusts that can allow you or a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease to protect hard-earned assets while maintaining comfort and quality of life—without jeopardizing eligibility for critical government benefits.
