Estate Planning and Alzheimer’s Disease

While everyone should have an estate plan, it is especially important for families living with Alzheimer’s disease. If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and you do not have estate planning documents like a will, Power of Attorney, or advance directive, please contact our office as soon as possible. Estate planning documents require the person who signs them to have the legal capacity to understand the documents’ consequences. In most cases, someone who has just received a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s can understand the meaning and importance of a given document and therefore has the legal capacity to sign it. However, the ability to understand the implications of legal documents may decline as the disease progresses.


We can guide you through all the legal ramifications surrounding an Alzheimer’s diagnosis, including medical and asset protection planning, advance directives and guardianship. We understand what you are going through during this difficult time and are here to help.
