Christina M. Bushnell and Dawn E. McFadden of McFadden Bushnell LLC visited us recently to provide guidance for families that may be affected by Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia – which is all families, really.

They discussed legal and financial plans families should make that can help them if they are affected by dementia. We’ve filmed their talk, so we can share it with all of you. Learn about trusts, documents you may want drafted or updated, the differences between Medicaid and Medicare, and more.

Of course, estate law can differ from state to state, and every family circumstance is unique. When in doubt, you should consult a legal professional.

We hosted this program with support from the Alzheimer’s Association.

By the way, if you’re looking to draft a legal document, Mentor Public Library offers a database with different legal-form templates that you can view or even download for free. It’s called the Legal Forms Library, and it’s one of the dozens of databases that we offer access to for free.

There are thousands of form templates for all types of topics: divorce, bankruptcy, power of attorney, name changes, wills, estates and more. (So you know, you’ll need to click through to the Legal Forms Library from the Mentor Public Library site for these hyperlinks to work.) And you can view, download or edit all these templates for free. There are also completed samples that you can view as a PDF or Microsoft Word file. This can give you an idea what your finished form should look like.


For more information, you can visit the FAQ section of the Legal Forms website.
