Early or Younger Onset Dementia – Planning for the future

Early or Younger Onset Dementia – Planning for the future

Planning early makes it easier for someone with younger onset dementia to manage their financial, legal and medical affairs now and in the future.

If you have been diagnosed with younger onset dementia, it is important to make important decisions while you still can and while you are legally competent to sign any documents.

Things to think about include:

  • your living arrangements into the future
  • who can have access to your financial accounts
  • having joint signatures on all financial accounts
  • arranging when and how you will access your finances
  • talking to a financial adviser
  • sorting out superannuation, health and income insurance
  • writing or updating your will

If you have been diagnosed with dementia, it’s important to nominate a trusted person to manage your affairs in the future. You can do this through an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA).

All of the above topics are further outlined in our diagram below and addressed via our smart phone App called YourLifeTalks – by choosing the Your Life Wishes Conversation.

Unlock the Benefits of ‘Life’ Storytelling:
Through the power of ‘Life Story’ telling and shared experiences, ‘YourLifeTalks can help overcome feelings of social isolation, providing positive and engaging experiences via our Smart Phone App or our physical ‘playing’ type cards.

Both the App & our Cards contain 50 engaging questions to help ‘kick-start’ interactions, in English, Spanish, Polish, Chinese & Vietnamese with more languages coming soon.

Ideal for all Veterans, Retirees, Seniors or Aged Care settings, family groups or even as a singular activity to counteract periods of ‘lockdown or self-isolation’.

Via our phone App, participants can simply ‘speak’ their answers to our 50 questions, directly into the phone microphone and our Voice-to-Text software will transcribe their responses into the written word and save the result.

To edit your responses simply return to the numbered question, position your cursor where you wish to make your amendment, then either ‘speak’ or ‘type’ your corrections and your responses will be updated & saved.
