Paying for Healthcare and Other Financial Considerations (Alzheimer's Roadmap Book 4) by Laura Town
Healthcare Costs Can Be Overwhelming
Protect Yourself and Your Savings
The financial burden that accompanies caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease is immense. Medical costs, costs for specialized living arrangements, and non-medical costs all increase substantially for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, and these costs are complicated by the fact that your loved one no longer has the mental capacity to manage their own finances. The checklists in this book detail what types of costs you can expect when caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease as well as resources you can use to help pay for these costs. This book details the importance of insurance, including health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, and long-term care insurance, and the costs that accompany each of these types of insurance. This book also discusses potential sources of income, including savings, retirement accounts, veterans benefits, and Social Security retirement income. The stipulations that go along with government resources such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are discussed in detail, as these resources often have complex rules that are difficult to understand. In addition, this book shares ways that you can recognize and avoid financial scams and protect your loved one with identity theft protection.
