Synopsis by Alice Day

When a person loses the ability to make important decisions, it is up to family members to determine what financial and legal obligations are involved in their care. When the family is also providing day-to-day care for an Alzheimer's patient, these responsibilities may need the support and counsel of a professional advisor. Facing Alzheimer's: Legal and Financial Considerations uses the example of a widow with two adult children, and combines dramatizations with real-life action. As the woman's illness progresses, it becomes apparent that many decisions can no longer be in her hands.
