According to a National Institute of Health study, 1 in 7 Americans over the age of 70 has dementia.* Although it can be difficult to speak with an aging parent or relative about dementia and financial issues—and just as tough to think about how you’d plan your own finances if you were to suffer from dementia—it’s important to know when and how to face this sensitive topic.
For valuable insights, listen to an important call from Doug Ewing, Director of Advanced Markets with Transamerica. He is also an attorney and Certified Financial Planner. Doug will provide critical information about both dementia and its impact on financial issues, including:
- The most common signs of Alzheimer’s and dementia
- What to do if you suspect a loved one has dementia
- Key financial steps to take when dementia strikes a loved one
- Important financial tools—like powers of attorney—that can make planning easier
Dan Huth, UBS Head of Sales Strategy and Advice. Beyond Investing, leads the discussion.
