A new client — let’s call her Mary — came to me and transferred her mom’s investment account to my firm. (Mary had power of attorney.) It was her mother’s wish to leave Mary the money.

Unfortunately, Mary’s mom suffered from Alzheimer’s, and the disease took a devastating toll on the account balance due to long-term care expenses.
