Finances were an area that needed to be addressed in this dealing with dementia. Both Dwane and I have always been very good managers of money (our financial advisor says we are in the top 5% of the population in how well we manage money), but with the checkbook lost once, I was concerned that we needed to protect our assets. We discussed it and we made the bank account with most of our money the stay-at-home checkbook, and we created a new bank account with limited money in it for the checkbook Dwane carries with him.

We have also created Living Wills, regular Wills, and we will do Power of Attorney very soon. There is not the need for it yet, but our attorney feels it is better to do it when both people are cognizant and agreeable to doing it.
