When settling the legal affairs of a person with Alzheimer’s disease it is important to make sure that he or she is able to continue with their normal life.

Undoubtedly, important decisions for that person will have to be made.  You will have to quickly decide who will get power of attorney over the person’s affairs before competency is lost.  You will also have to decide what type of long-term care arrangements should be made for the person.  You will also have to have someone make life and health care decisions that are necessary, and give the decision maker a power of attorney to make those decisions.  Locating the person’s bank account details and financial assets is also important to make sure that he or she is able to support them self.
