Cognitive impairment is a growing reality as we age and can be difficult to either experience firsthand or watch a loved one suffer from, even if they only have mild cognitive impairment. Unfortunately, according to the Alzheimer’s Association website, approximately 12-18% of people age 60 or older are living with mild cognitive impairment, and more than 6 million Americans are affected by Alzheimer’s. Any form of cognitive impairment can put you or your loved one at risk for a financial mishap and undo years of careful planning.
