Advance estate planning can help people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and their families. This research investigated the estate planning of people with AD and their families for the presence of: (1) a valid will, (2) a durable power of attorney, (3) a living will, and (4) life insurance using a publicly available dataset, the Health and Retirement Study. We found that people diagnosed with AD were more likely to assign a durable power of attorney for health care than those without AD, suggesting that the onset of a diagnosis encourages attainment of this critical estate planning need for individuals and their families. Research findings can stimulate public discussion regarding AD and estate planning and provide reliable information to millions of people affected by AD.
