On Saturday, September 30th this free educational seminar will be held at the main branch of the Gail Borden Public Library District in Elgin. The 60- to 90-minute seminar will begin at 10 am.
The seminar is ideal for the person diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other chronic or terminal disease and his or her caregiver or other family members involved in planning for their loved one’s care.
Participants will learn how to:
- Rebuild their financial plan given the diagnosis.
- Budget for the cost of the disease.
- Locate financial resources available to families to help meet care expenses.
- Have “the talk” about money with their loved one diagnosed with a chronic or terminal disease.
In addition, there will be guidance provided on coverage of the new drug Leqembi by Medicare. Leqembi was recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Leqembi slows progression of the disease.
It is never too late or too early to plan!
