Elder Care Planning

Mother and daughter

Are you caring for an elder, or perhaps anticipating that kind of responsibility is right around the corner? You’re probably worried, frustrated, or even angry about what might happen. Whether it’s your parent, your spouse, or another loved one whose health is slipping away, it’s painful to watch someone struggle. You want to do the right thing, but may not know how to evaluate care options. Most people want to stay ‘home’– that familiar and comfortable place – even when it’s well past wise to do so.

Wouldn’t it be comforting to have someone to help you sort through the tangle of choices, make good decisions, and navigate the details?
