November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. Here at Maine Elder Law Firm, we often work with families who are affected by Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Early planning can allow for the individual with dementia to set forth his or her wishes regarding care and asset preservation goals, but even after a health care crisis, there often are legitimate strategies available to protect an individual’s assets from long-term care expenses, including costs of nursing homes, of residential care/assisted living facilities, and of nursing services in the home.
Below are links to education resources for more information on Alzheimer’s disease. We welcome families to call us at (207) 947-6500 and schedule an initial meeting to speak with one of our elder law attorneys.
