As a CPA financial planner, you’re often the first to recognize when a client is showing signs of dementia and you’re in the trusted position to protect their finances and their care. Reina Schlager, CPA/PFS, shares experiences she has had to help you navigate similar situations with your clients, such as:

  • Helping to physically protect your clients
  • Recognizing when family members need to be told
  • Treating the client with dignity
  • Noticing when a guardianship needs to be put in place
  • Knowing when to bring in other advisors
  • Making sure client wishes are met with their care
