Researchers estimate more than 9 million Americans could have dementia by 2030, with hundreds of thousands of dollars needed for each individual's care. Sidney Kess, CPA, JD, LLM, and Elizabeth Forspan, Esq., will conduct an interactive and informative discussion about estate planning, elder care planning, long-term care planning, and tax planning items for those affected by a dementia diagnosis. While this can be a sensitive topic for advisors and caregivers, it is important to take the appropriate steps—starting with understanding your options.

Learning Objective:


  • Recognize the massive impact that dementia will have on the American population in this decade

  • Outline planning options for those with a recent dementia diagnosis, their loved ones, and advisors
