After a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, people are often left with many questions: How will this effect my ability to control my own finances? Will I be able to keep my driver’s license? How will this affect me at work? Does the law protect or affect me? This GCOA report provides a look at the legal implications associated with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or another dementia in each US state across a variety of areas, including financial management, guardianship, the justice system, genetic testing and access issues. The report also provides policy recommendations to better protect people living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias across these topic areas. This report was made possible by GCOA member Eli Lilly & Company.
