Legal/Financial Planning For Alzheimer’s– Free April Webinar


Caring for loved ones with Alzheimers day-to-day is a challenge. Preparing for the potentially staggering costs is yet another.

Financial planners estimate that the average cost of a single year in a nursing home ranges from $70,000 to $100,000. Stays can range from several months up to 10 years or more. Unfortunately, the average working-age American’s retirement savings is less than $100,000.

The Alzheimer's Association is helping families anticipate and prepare for both the legal and financial challenges that accompany a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or other dementia with a free webinar on Wednesday, April 28 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

“Legal and Financial Planning for Alzheimer’s” is an interactive program where participants learn about important legal and financial issues to consider, how to put plans in place, and how to access legal and financial resources.

Legal and Financial Planning for Alzheimer's is one in a series of live webinars offered at no charge during the month of April. The full schedule for the month includes:

• The 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease; and Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia was held last week.
