At Idaho Estate Planning we see it on a weekly basis. Families struggling with how to care for an aging loved one. Whether a spouse, parent or grandparent the choice is never easy. Quality of care, the high cost of services, family resources and the wishes of those suffering all complicate the decision. Nothing complicates the process more than dementia. Alzheimer's, Lewy Body Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) are just three forms of dementia faced by modern elders and their families.
A recent series of articles in the Kansas City Star titled Denise's Decision is an in-depth report on how one family is facing the tough challenges involved in caring for a family member struck with FTD. You can find the artice at http://projects.kansascity.com/decision. We recommend the article for anyone now facing or who may soon be facing these challenges to read the article.
