Care planning for dementia patients requires early action

In our blog post last week, we discussed how life care plans for patients who have dementia are vital to ensure their wishes are followed. We discussed how important it is for patients who are diagnosed with Alzheimer's to create their life care plans and other estate plans as soon after diagnosis as possible. For our readers in Texas, this can be a very difficult thought. Nobody wants to have to deal with his or her loved one creating estate plans.

We can stand by you to help you and your loved one create the estate plan that outlines everything that needs to be taken care of. If your loved one is in the early stages of dementia, he or she can likely make the decisions. That can quickly change, so taking quick action is vital to ensure your loved one maintains the right to have a say in what happens.

Not only do you have to think about the estate plan, you also have to consider what they want to happen in their final days. This can mean discussing the wishes of your loved one in regards to medical care, such as life support. It can also mean establishing durable powers of attorney for financial decisions and legal decisions.

The more decisions your loved one makes on his or her own, the more in control he or she will feel about the entire situation. While you are trying to ensure your loved one has the care he or she needs now, we can help you to ensure your loved one's final wishes are all conveyed in a manner that makes it easy and legal to follow those wishes.
