Workshops help families affected by Alzheimer’s

Topics include financial, legal matters

Attorney Craig Ploss will give a free presentation on legal and financial issues for families affected by Alzheimer’s disease from 10 a.m. to noon Tues., Aug. 15 at the Simi Valley Senior Center, 3900 Avenida Simi.

After receiving an Alzheimer’s diagnosis, financial planning often gets pushed aside because of the stress and fear the topic evokes.

Legal planning is especially vital for someone diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. The sooner planning begins, the more likely it is that the person with the disease will be able to participate.

Families should plan ahead to reduce stress and know they are following the wishes of those involved.

The program is sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association.

To register for the presentation, call (805) 583-6363.
