A FREE WEBINAR from the Alzheimer’s Association, NM Chapter
Presented by attorneys Margaret A. Graham and Daniel J. Monte of Pregenzer, Baysinger, Wideman & Sale, PC.
 
Originally Presented on Tuesday May 19th, 2020, 10am – 11am
 
Early legal and financial planning is critical for families facing the journey of Alzheimer’s disease.  All too often family members are put into the position of having to make financial and treatment care decisions for their aging loved ones, and sadly, not being better prepared often leads to major problems.
Being an active participant in planning one’s future is important for the person who has been diagnosed, and can eliminate unnecessary stress and hardship for loved ones down the road.  Understanding your legal options, as well as a working knowledge of terms such as “powers of attorney”, “guardianship”, and “living wills” can make all the difference. 
Join us for a special presentation from attorneys Margaret A. Graham and Daniel J. Monte of Pregenzer, Baysinger, Wideman & Sale, PC. They will explore what you should know to plan with confidence and map out the legal road ahead.
