Dementia and Alzheimer’s Planning: What Does it Mean?


The Basics

Individuals with Alzheimer’s, Dementia disease have unique legal and financial needs, as do their families.  Dementia care costs are extremely high. In New Jersey, depending on the level of care required, costs are typically between $7,000 and $20,000 per month!  The range of costs depends on whether the care that is provided is at home, at an assisted living residence, adult day care program, or nursing home.  As one can imagine, this cost is devastating to the average family.

Navigating through the emotional and physical demands of Alzheimer’s and Dementia care is very challenging. Calling upon the assistance of a knowledgeable Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA), among other professionals, can help ease the burden on your family. NJ Elder Law Center at Goldberg Law Group is an experienced Alzheimer’s and Dementia attorney, having handled cases and lectured throughout New Jersey to various professional and community groups on topics including Alzheimer’s Planning, Asset Protection, Veterans Benefits, and NJ Medicaid.
