Need Help with Elder Care Planning?March 1, 2019
Elder care planning involves a lot of steps and can be overwhelming if you are planning your loved one’s care all by yourself. A-1 Home Care’s seasoned advisors will assist you in coming up with a suitable plan for your elderlyloved ones based on your budget, availability and level of needs. Many families find long term care planning helpful because it reduces stress. It usually involves discussion of your loved one’s preferences: do they want to stay in the comfort of their own home when they get older or do you plan on moving them into a nursing home? (We guarantee you that every senior will vote for compassionate, skilled in-home care in the presence of their family members and friends.) A-1 Home Care has been helping families in Los Angeles for a quarter of a century.
Factors to Consider in Elder Care Planning
The first thing on your “to-do” list is to call a meeting. How many people can you gather in one place for an important meeting? Who should you invite? Siblings, first cousins, medical professionals, caregivers, expert elder careadvisors, neighbors, family friends, and anyone else who could help should be part of the first meeting. A-1 Home Care can send someone to attend your family meeting and offer input about what your elderly loved one may need when in-home care services will be required. A monthly assessment from one of A-1 Home Care’s geriatric care managers can be especially helpful to you and your family as you chart the progress of your elderly loved one’s condition. An experienced caregiver will tell you the signs and symptoms she recognizes in your loved one, and she will recommend the type of care your loved one may need, whether that would be 24 hour care, live-out care, live-in care and specialized care such as ALS Care or other.
