It’s hard to avoid the turmoil of the last few weeks, especially as we get closer and closer to Inauguration Day this Wednesday.

It can be really easy to fall into the trap of doomscrolling social media or constantly hitting refresh on news sites.

In fact, it took a lot of oversight and careful planning to ensure she had enough money to cover the cost of her care as Alzheimer’s disease left her unable to care for herself.

Truth be told, I should have been paying more attention to my mom’s finances before her Alzheimer’s diagnosis. As I learned, waiting for an emergency to get involved can be a mistake. And new research backs that up.”

We’re all human and we all make mistakes.
