People with memory concerns, Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia and their loved ones often have questions about planning for their future. The Dementia Legal Planning Toolkit can help you make important financial and health care decisions and give you the legal forms you need.

Stress and fear often delay financial planning when Alzheimer’s or other dementia is diagnosed. You can reduce stress by planning ahead.Putting financial plans in place now allows the person with dementia to express wishes for future care and decisions. It also gives you time to work through the issues involved in long-term care.
Washington’s Community Living Connections staff are available to help you explore your options to meet your current needs or create a plan for the future.
