Are you or a loved one dealing with memory concerns, or even a diagnosis of dementia? Maybe you’re early in the disease progression, or perhaps you’re struggling to provide care at home and need to consider a care facility…and how to pay for the high cost of long-term care.
We know the pain you’re feeling, and we have seen many people make mistakes that could have been avoided, but they didn’t get the right help in time. Those mistakes weren’t their fault, they just didn’t know how to find the right guidance along the way.
At The Elderlaw Firm, we have helped many families along the dementia journey, and we’re here to help you, too.
Three Important Questions and Impact of Dementia
Our law firm helps our clients answer these three important questions:
- What happens if they die?
- What happens if they live but get sick?
- What happens if that sickness is dementia?
If you’re dealing with dementia now, you already understand that dementia creates an additional layer of long-term care planning needs, and often time is of the essence.
What is Dementia?
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 concerned you may have to deal with that someday, we are here to help.
It is a huge misconception that all dementia is 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.
Probably the dementia that we hear the most about it Alzheimer’s Disease. But without getting a proper diagnosis, you or your loved one may miss out on the most appropriate treatment.
