'Legal and Financial Planning for Alzheimer's Disease' -- free program at Manor House June 13
During the month of June, designated by the Alzheimer’s Association® as Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, you can take advantage of a free educational program being offered by the Association’s Western New York Chapter.
A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease makes planning for the future a very important task for families. Concerns about care planning and programs that can help offset costs mean that families need accurate information about legal and financial matters specific to the disease.
"Legal and Financial Planning for Alzheimer’s Disease" is an opportunity to learn about important legal and financial issues to consider, how to put plans in place and how to access legal and financial resources in the community.
The Alzheimer’s Association WNY Chapter is offering the program on Wednesday, June 13, at 4:30 p.m. in The Manor House at 427 E. Main St. in Batavia. A light meal will also be provided.
Topics to be discussed include:
• Making legal plans that fit individual and family needs;
• Legal documents and what they mean;
• How to find legal and financial assistance;
• Practical strategies for making a long-term plan of care;
• Government programs that can help pay for care;
The program is free and open to the public, but seating reservations are requested by calling 1-800-272-3900.
