Frazier Allen: Caring for Your Loved One – The Three Stages of Decline

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond JamesClarksville, TN – Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that includes three basic stages: mild, moderate, and severe.

Denial is one serious challenge families often face with Alzheimer’s. Due to the progressive nature of the disease, people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia have a limited window in which they will be able to articulate their wishes for future care, living arrangements, finances, and legal matters.

For this reason, it’s important for families to discuss their concerns and work through this denial phase in the mild stage of cognitive decline.

If you suspect a loved one is experiencing cognitive decline, it’s critical to discuss financial, legal and caregiving plans immediately.

When my mother nearly died from an infection caused by his inability to continue to care for her, I flew from southern California to San Francisco to try to save her life—having no idea that in the process it would nearly cost me my own. «Read the rest of this article»
