Legal and Financial Planning For Persons With Dementia and Their Families

The New York City Chapter holds seminars designed to acquaint families affected by Alzheimer's disease and related dementias with legal and financial issues associated with planning for the long-term care of their relative. An attorney specializing in Elder Law will discuss important topics family members should understand before meeting with their personal attorney.
