If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease then now is the time to start planning for the future. Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disease that will eventually rob you or your loved one of your ability to make critical decisions, which is why it is important to start now to get things in order. Here are some future planning steps for an Alzheimer’s patient.

Make Sure All Information is Up to Date

Having someone who can make critical decisions for you or your loved one is necessary. This means having them name someone with Power of Attorney. Along with that, make sure that all of the healthcare and financial information is up to date and current before that information gets lost. Having access to the info can help to ensure that whoever has power of attorney can make current and up to date decisions for the patient.

Set Up a Fraud Prevention Protection Plan

Elderly folks with reduced capacity for decision making are the most at risk for being taken advantage of by fraud. Having a plan that includes protection of their financial assets as well as identity theft prevention can help to ensure their resources stay intact.

End of Life Plan

While it may not be an attractive topic, make sure that an end of life plan is set and taken care of.
