Sean Connery | Estates & Dementia
- November 4, 2020 - Celebrity Estate Battles,
Hi, I’m Mike Hackard. Let’s talk today about Sir Sean Connery, the Scottish-born actor celebrated for his iconic portrayal of 007 in the James Bond film series. Connery died recently at age 90, and his longtime wife Micheline Roquebrune has revealed that in his final months, he suffered from dementia.
Conditions of cognitive decline like dementia and Alzheimer’s affect over 5 million American seniors. Alzheimer’s is the sixth-leading cause of death in our country, and its impacts are inevitably felt in our families and communities. At the root of many estate disputes is a wrongdoer’s exploitation of an elder suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Thankfully, it would seem that Connery already had an effective estate plan or trust in place to ensure his wife Micheline would be well taken care of after he peacefully passed away in his sleep. The rest of us who knew Sean Connery from on screen will miss him and his unmistakable style.
