When it comes to planning for retirement, it's always important to consider how your taxes come into play. Understanding how your income will be taxed in the future makes a difference in how you invest, save, and spend your money now. ​

Be sure to take advantage of any tax credits and benefits available to older adults. It's still crucial to plan as much in advance as possible. By working with an advisor and staying informed about tax changes, you can properly prepare for the future.

Dementia can often lead people to withdraw from activities and social interactions, making it crucial to maintain their interests and relationships in order to support individuals living with dementia and improve their quality of life.​

Acknowledging and utilizing skills and life experiences that come naturally to individuals can help them feel like they belong and have a purpose. Emotionally nurturing experiences can increase self-esteem and make individuals feel valued.

Some daily meaningful activities to try with those living with dementia include baking, gardening, group zoom calls with family, painting, and playing simple board or card games. These activities can help keep individuals engaged and improve their overall quality of life. ​
