USA Today Story Brings New Attention to legal and Medical Decisions for Alzheimer’s Patients

USA Today has now written multiple articles about restaurateur and lifestyle guru B. Smith. While she struggles with her Alzheimer’s, her husband has brought a companion for himself into their home.

Many people have reacted negatively to this living situation, and obviously, at this point, it is impossible to know how Smith would have felt about this new living arrangement.

This situation has resulted in new discussions about the importance of families discussing the wishes and desires of older family members or even younger members in the early stages of Alzheimer’s.

With a growing number of people impacted by this disease, this case and the publicity from it should help raise awareness of the importance of making sure your family knows what you want, and all the appropriate medical and legal documents are prepared before it becomes too late.

Here’s a link to the latest USA Today article about this situation.
