Roughly once every minute, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s disease. And roughly once every minute, family members and loved ones are overcome with stress and sadness upon hearing the news. In that confusion and the urgency to understand the short- and long-term implications, families frequently overlook the critical consideration of financial planning.
