Bathroom Safety for a Loved One with Late Stage Dementia

These days, about 80 percent of people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) stay in their own homes with the support of family and friend caregivers rather than move to long-term care facilities.

When this happens, we must move out of our home. If our property is worth less than the total amount we owe to the bank, a deficiency judgment, which is a ruling made by a court against a borrower who does not have enough funds to pay back their loan, could be pursued against us.
