Legal issues

People with Alzheimer’s disease and their loved ones often have legal questions.

If you have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, click here for legal planning resources. Resources for caregivers are available here.

Information on legal resources for older adults and people with disabilities in Oregon are available here.

Financial planning

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.
