This post by Kay Bransford, on her Dealing With Dementia blog, is important enough that I want to share it here for all of us who are – or may be in the future – caregivers for loved ones with Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementias.
We live in a digital age and we work very hard to protect ourselves online from things like identity theft and access to our financial and personal data. However, it is important to make sure that we give access to our POA’s in case something happens to us and it is important that we have this information for our loved ones with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia whom we are caring for and, if not already, will be entrusted to handle their legal, medical, and financial affairs for them.
So, Kay’s advice struck me today as being very timely for all of us.
