Planning in retirement isn’t just about money and it isn’t just about goals… it’s also about recognizing that unexpected things happen. Knowing what to look for, can help you spot early warning signs before those seemingly “small things” in life become big financial issues.
As a financial planner with a background in healthcare, some of the things I share with you are also related to your health. I have seen, time and time again, how health issues can have a dramatic effect on an otherwise perfectly sound retirement plan.
What kind of advisor would I be, if I didn’t help make sure your health(care) planning was part of your wealth(care) planning! So, I thought this brief article twould be interesting to share with you…
“It turns out that a change in someone’s sense of humor may signal dementia. People who develop frontotemporal dementia tend to have behavior and personality changes – NOT memory troubles – in the years before the condition is diagnosed.
One such change involves laughing at things that people don’t usually find funny, such as a badly parked car. Friends and relatives of people with this form of dementia report noticing changes at least nine years before dementia symptoms appear.
A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease noted that these changes are not associated with Alzheimer’s disease – but people with both frontotemporal dementia and Alzheimer’s tend to prefer slapstick humor to humor that is satirical or absurdist.”
