Receiving a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is very difficult. Whether you’ve been diagnosed or a loved one has recently received this news, you’re likely coping with grief about lost opportunities, anxiety about what the future holds and worry about everything that needs to be organized. If this is impacting you, you’re not alone. It’s estimated that 5.8 million people in the United States had Alzheimer’s disease in 2020, and if there aren’t any advances in treatment, it’s likely that number will grow to 13.8 million by 2060. Planning for the future can help you get control of the situation and ensure you’re prepared as challenges arise.
