Legal Aspects in Representing Clients With Dementia

Gain a better understanding of why preplanning measures are important to avoid crisis situations upon medical incapacity.

Whenever individuals or their families are faced with a medical diagnosis of dementia, they are confronted with daunting questions--how to provide for care when the patient can no longer manage his or her own affairs, what to do to protect their rights and property, and how to cope with the day-to-day challenges of fading memory and diminished cognition. This content addresses handling the legal aspects that often arise when a client has dementia.
