Just for Thinking ....
Dementia is a loss of brain function that occurs with certain diseases. It affects memory, thinking, language, judgment, and behavior.
I saw what can really happen to a person who has dementia; and for older folks like me should include it as part of financial planning. How can a family member take over my portfolio when sign of dementia is showing up.
This is what happened today.
My mother-in-law tapped her ezlink card at MRT gate and went out first. I followed closely behind her. As she was slow in walking through the gate but I was quick to tap my ezlink card and caused the card to fail. I tapped again but still failed. So I went to the control room but the staff was busy on the phone and I have to wait for him.
I could see my mother-in-law looking quite lost from a distance when she realized that I was not behind her. She nervously looked around and searched for me. At last she realized that I was inside the MRT station. She tapped her ezlink card and came in again.
Dementia can happen to any old folks so we need to consider it as part of financial planning.
