The Alzheimer’s Association Confident Caregiver Series presents free legal and financial issues classes

Legal and financial assistance is available for those dealing with Alzheimer’s.

The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease makes planning for the future more important than ever. Concerns about care provision and programs that can help offset costs mean that families need accurate information about legal and financial planning specific to the disease. A lot of the time, families are not prepared to make financial plans themselves due to a lack of understanding about the disease and finances. Most people would be wise to contact professionals, like these Accounting firms in Melbourne, to make a well-thought-out and efficient plan for them.

This program will cover information for families and individuals dealing with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia.

Topics covered will include:

  • Making legal plans that fit your needs
  • Legal documents you’ll need and what they mean for all of you
  • How to find legal and financial assistance
  • Practical strategies for making a long-term plan of care
  • Tax deductions and credits
  • Government programs that can help pay for care

Legal and Financial Issues will be held in the East and West parts of Ventura County. On Tuesday, August 15th from 10 a.m. to noon the class will be held at St. John’s Regional Medical Center Room 2 & 4 located at 1600 N. Rose Ave. in Oxnard.
