Having spent approximately the last thirty years representing seniors and their families with the myriad of legal and familial issues impacting them as they age, I have unfortunately seen first hand the havoc created by a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. What has become most apparent is that more and more individuals are being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia related illness such as Parkinson's disease and Lewy Body dementia. Sadly, I have also recently observed an increase in number of Alzheimer's diagnoses at ages earlier than one would normally expect. In recent years I have counseled a number of families where an Alzheimer's diagnoses was made of an individual in their 60s and two families where the diagnosis was made in their 50s and 40s; a truly frightening prospect.
