Glen Campbell I'll Be Me Cedar Valley Event
Dementia is the term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life and unfortunately is something that many of our loved ones will face as they age. Every 67 seconds, someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, which accounts for 60 to 80 percent of all dementia cases. Additionally, one in three seniors will die with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia.
The Glen Campbell I'll Be Me event wants you or a loved one who has been diagnosed to know that you are not alone. On September 15th, this free event will provide education about dementia and various support services in the Cedar Valley followed by the I'll Be Me documentary about country music star Glen Campbell and his diagnosis. After the show, Glen's wife, Kim Campbell will answer questions about their experience.
Who Takes Care of the Bills?
Due to one in three seniors being affected by dementia, many families are faced with a difficult journey as the disease progresses and alters the memory and judgment of the one they love. With so many other things to take care of, financial obligations may be the last thing on your mind.
But unfortunately, someone will need to pay bills, manage investments, and figure taxes. Often times a court will appoint someone to make financial decisions on their behalf, leaving a family member feeling overwhelmed with the task.
It can often be beneficial to plan ahead and avoid this situation altogether by establishing a revocable trust. A revocable trust allows you to choose who will ultimately be handling your financial affairs should you become disabled. This will allow the experts to continue to manage your assets for you and your beneficiaries. Trusts can be unique to your situation and will help make sure your financial affairs are handled the way you want.
