A Primer for Advisors on the Aging Brain: Understanding Cognitive Impairment, Taking Action Steps – Sandra Timmermann
As our clients age, some of them will develop diseases such as Alzheimer’s or other dementias.
What are some steps that might be taken if a client’s behavior changes due to cognitive impairment?
Those who are cognitively impaired may put their own retirement security at risk, at the same time, can cause ethical and practical dilemmas for their financial advisors.
This webinar will help advisors better understand how the aging brain works, how to differentiate between normal memory loss and dementia, how to detect financial elder abuse and what steps should be taken if a client’s behavior changes due to cognitive impairment.
In this one-hour session, you will:
- Learn about the aging brain;
- Gain a better understanding of diseases of the brain such as Alzheimer’s and the behaviors that result;
- Discover normal age-related changes in memory that occur in the brain and strategies to maintain brain health;
- Better understand how to detect elder financial abuse;
- Learn possible interventions and actions that advisors can take before and after their clients become cognitively impaired.
