July 8, 2019

Tuesday, August 6, 2019, 2:00-3:00 PM ET

Register for this event.

The nature of dementia makes it incredibly important for people living with dementia, caregivers, and family to plan ahead. As dementia progresses, a person living with dementia will lose the ability to manage care and finances. Planning can include identifying health care and service options, determining how to pay for care, and reviewing legal resources. This webinar will discuss key aspects of financial, legal, and care planning that can help to ensure a more stable future for those living with dementia, and their caregivers.
