Caring for a loved one who is living with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia can be quite challenging and should not be underestimated. Having conversations early and often is the key for making sure the right health care decisions are made in the second half of life. In this episode, Attorney Megan Ingram and Long-Term Care Planner Tammy Zilske discuss three conversations that need to happen within your family if you have a loved one that has a dementia, and also answer the following questions and more:
- Are there government benefits available to help cover the costs of care?
- When should you consider placing a loved one with dementia into a nursing home?
- How much does Medicare and Medicaid cover for the costs of care?
- Will giving your house to a child create any issues related to receiving government benefits?
