"Alzheimer's and Dementia: Meeting the Challenges"
Host Lou Pierro with guest Beth Boivin, Executive Director & CEO, Alzheimer's Association Northeastern New York Chapter
Chances are you know someone with Alzheimer’s Disease. One out of three adults have personal contact with a friend, relative or neighbor who is affected. So how can you best offer support through compassion, care giving or financial help?
On Saturday’s edition of Life Happens Radio, a special guest joined host Lou Pierro to share strategies on meeting those challenges with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. Beth Boivin, who leads the Northeastern New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, talked about the best ways to enhance care and support your loved one, as Lou detailed the latest legal tools to obtain quality healthcare without ‘spending down’ life savings. By combining these techniques, you can access options for housing, home care, Medicaid, guardianship and all the resources offered by the Alzheimer’s Association.
Lou and Beth also informed listeners on how to register for our upcoming free seminar, "Legal and Financial Strategies for Caregivers" on September 13 in Hudson. Its not to late to sign up! Click here to register.
