Experts estimate that as many as over 5 million Americans may be suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia among seniors. The disease attacks an individual’s cognitive functioning and behavioral abilities.
Alzheimer’s ranges in severity from a mild stage, in which it affects a person’s functioning, to the most severe stage, where an individual is relatively incapacitated and requires constant assistance with the basic activities of daily living. Those diagnosed with the disease often worsen as time continues as the disease slowly destroys memory and thinking skills.
Those suffering from the disease deserve the utmost respect and attention. At times, individuals require nursing care which can be paid for under the New York Medicaid program. At the firm of Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, we take pride in our dedication and commitment to assisting Alzheimer’s sufferers and their loved ones with easing the process of creating an individualized plan of care and often coupled with financial protection.
Early detection and estate planning are necessary tools, in obtaining maximum benefits for the patient, however, these tools are overlooked. If a loved one is suffering from Alzheimer’s, the firm of Angiuli and Gentile, LLP can ease the family’s burdens by guiding and supporting them through the process of obtaining care for their loved one.
