will be dealing with this in the future. This can be all-encompassing and overwhelming for many people. There is not a one-size-fits-all solution in dealing with this situation. Due to medical needs, finances, and geographical desire, the right solution will vary from family to family.
Some families will bring a senior loved one into their home so they can care for them. (My brother and I are hopeful that my sister will step up to the plate should this ever become an issue in our family:) However, many people do not have a home that is conducive to this type of arrangement (e.g., lack of space, too many stairs, nobody home most of the day, you would like to stay married, etc.)
If you are looking to bring a care-giver into the home, there are many things to consider. In future posts, I will elaborate on those considerations and also discuss Assisted Living options, issues around Memory Care, and the role of Skilled Nursing.
My goal for today’s post was to let you know that I live and work in your community and that I am happy to help you explore the many options that best suit your specific needs. I would also like you to know that my services are free to the families.
