New smartphone App shares your last wishes

A new smart phone app is available which focuses on advance directives, or decisions focusing on end-of-life wishes. Developed by the Commission on Law & Aging for the American Bar Association, the app shares important information which can be crucial during a medical emergency or other unforeseen crisis. The App covers just about everything including contacts and insurance information. Legal documents are easily stored with improved access, from anywhere. While the App is not free-it currently is available for purchase for $3.99-it can be a valuable part of ensuring you or your loved one's wishes are respected.

Helena Capital Rotunda Turns Purple

Montana Capital Rotunda will turn purple February 13th 2015! Introducing the most expensive disease in the world and the 6th leading cause of death: Alzheimer's Disease. If you haven't already heard, Montana has something in common with the rest of America. In fact, Montana is a leader when compared to other states. By the year 2025, the projected number of people who will be living with Alzheimer's Disease or a Related Dementia in Montana alone is 27,000. Hands-down the burden will be huge.  Each community is already challenged to do things differently due to the demand for safe, affordable solutions. Employers  will be challenged to be more flexible and add benefits in support of caregivers. More Americans will become caregivers by necessity and have reduction in work hours or total work loss due to caregiving responsibilities. Life-savings, if any, disappear at astonishing rates with 24 hour care needs creating annual expenses which exceed $50,000.
There is a lot of work going on in the state of Montana but there is so much more to do.

I am working hard, along with so many others, to make Montana a Dementia-friendly state.
Join us, provide whatever support you may, or pass this message along to help advocate for those living with Alzheimer's Disease and their families, health care providers, caregivers and community.
