Planning for Dementia 

Get basic information about dementia, what to expect along your journey with this disease, and how to plan ahead for legal matters and the cost of care.

Dementia is a progressive brain condition that affects memory, thinking, and daily activities. While there's currently no cure, there are steps you can take to ensure your well-being and plan for the future. Here are three important actions to consider:

  • Connect with a Doctor: A medical professional can diagnose dementia, discuss treatment options, and provide support and guidance throughout your journey.
  • Build a Strong Support System: Surround yourself with loved ones and consider joining a support group. Having a network of people who care can make a big difference.
  • Make Legal and Financial Decisions Early: Planning ahead will give you peace of mind. This includes creating documents like a durable power of attorney for healthcare and finances, and a living will. Discuss long-term care options and financial planning with your loved ones to ensure your needs are met as the condition progresses. A clear care plan outlining your preferences for living arrangements, caregiving, and end-of-life decisions can benefit both you and your family.

By taking these steps proactively, you can navigate dementia with greater confidence and ensure your wishes are respected.

Long-term Care Planning

Protecting Your Legacy and Ensuring Quality Care

The rising cost of long-term care, like nursing homes and assisted living facilities, can be a significant concern for seniors and their families. While Long-Term Care Insurance (LTCI) is an ideal solution, many people lack such coverage.

Sage Legacy Counsel understands these challenges. We offer comprehensive Long-Term Care Planning services designed to help you navigate the complexities of this crucial aspect of estate planning.

Here's how our Long-Term Care Planning services can benefit you:

  • Minimize Costs: We work closely with you to explore options that can potentially minimize the financial burden of long-term care. This may involve strategies to maximize Medicaid benefits, utilize other financial resources effectively, and potentially reduce out-of-pocket expenses.
