Can You Help? We Need Volunteers
We have an urgent need for volunteers to help in our office to answer phones and assist visitors. In addition, office volunteers will make copies and may respond to office e-mail. We also need a volunteer to facilitate the patient support group for the Tuesday morning caregiver support group. If you are interested in finding out more, please call our office at (916) 483-2002.
Info for Caregivers: Legal Matters
As Alzheimer's Disease progresses, there will come a point when your loved one should no longer be involved in financial and legal decisions. These decisions must be completed before Alzheimer's steals your loved one's sound judgement. Before that happens, your family has hard decisions to make and legal documents to prepare. But what does it all mean? The staff and legal volunteers at the Alzheimer's Aid Society are here to help.
First, review the chapter in "A Practical Guide for Alzheimer's Caregivers" on legal information. This chapter covers health care directives, wills and trusts, Veteran’s Affairs Aid and Attendance Benefits, and Medi-Cal benefits.
Second, call our office at (916) 483-2002 and request free legal guidance. You will receive an appointment with Max Perry, JD, and Attorney Ric Duverney for a consultation. Appointments are scheduled for the third Friday of each month.
Finally, follow through! Don't wait until it is too late!
