Alzheimer’s – the other Pandemic

The Barron’s weekly February 8, 2021 publication had a comprehensive article on Alzheimer’s disease which they called The Other Pandemic. https://www.barrons.com/articles/the-coming-alzheimers-crisisand-what-to-do-about-it-51612543200?mod=hp_MAG It is a fairly basic article but good for those who are just beginning to struggle with this for a family member. A more advanced and interesting article discusses the new Biogen Alzheimer’s drug, aducanumab, in development. https://www.barrons.com/articles/biogens-big-bet-on-its-alzheimers-drug-what-happens-to-the-biotechs-stock-51612526499?mod=hp_LEAD_4 It has been 18 years since we have had any new approved drugs for treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. This article discusses the status of approval for aducanumab and other drugs.

Our website has very comprehensive information on asset protection planning for families dealing with Alzheimer’s, Medicaid eligibility in Ohio https://www.michaelmillonig.com/ohio-medicaid/ as well as basic estate planning important to be done in the early stages of the disease. In the middle or later stages the Alzheimer’s patient will not be legally competent to sign any legal documents.
