Retirement Resources President, Dave Boike, Helps Raise Awareness For World Alzheimer’s Month Nothin
Retirement Resources President and Investment Advisor, Dave Boike, brings a greater sense of urgency to financial planning for the unexpected during the World Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.
Auburn Hills, MI — September 29, 2022— Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy published a new article post on the company website entitled, “Helping Raise Awareness And Challenging The Stigma Associated With Alzheimer’s,” in which Mr. Boike encourages action sooner rather than later.
Boike states, “September is World Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.” He continues adding, “On a personal note, my wife and I have experience helping to care for my mother who has been living with memory loss for more than five years. As a financial planner helping my clients prepare for the best retirement years possible, I have seen the results this devastating disease can have on families. And, as a financial planner, I know the absolute importance of having legal financial documents in place prior to receiving a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or other dementias.” He emphasizes, “Fortunately, my mother’s financial affairs were in order before she was diagnosed.
“I am not an attorney,” writes Boike, adding, “so I do not offer legal advice. However, having seen how an estate can become legally embroiled when a family has not made the appropriate arrangements prior to a diagnosis of dementia of any kind inspires me to encourage my readers to consider the implications and act sooner rather than later. This is also my way of helping to raise awareness during World Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.”
Boike writes, “According to the Alzheimer’s Disease International website, many people are of the belief that Alzheimer’s is a normal functioning of aging. They say that is not true, which is why it is so important to recognize the symptoms and make important decisions before any diagnosis.”
September 21st World Alzheimer’s Awareness Day
Boike includes information from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and includes, “Very often, it is noted by many Alzheimer’s organizations that, after a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or other dementia, financial planning often gets pushed aside because of the stress and fear this topic evokes.” https://www.alz.org/help-support/i-have-alz/plan-for-your-future/financial_planning According to Boike, “Avoiding addressing these important financial decisions before an illness happens only makes matters worse.”
