As your parents age, dealing with their health issues and financial concerns will likely become an issue you will need to face. There will come a time when you can no longer provide the care and assistance that they need and you will find yourself asking, “What should I be doing to help them?” For some, the obvious answer may appear to be a nursing facility but the striking reality is that this is often prohibitively expensive and usually doesn’t provide the best environment for your parent. Additionally, Medicare doesn’t cover the cost of long-term care in a nursing facility.
If provisions have not been made ahead of time, families can become overwhelmed with the high price and complexity of providing for an elderly parent when they can no longer care for themselves. This downloadable guide will help prevent those feelings of fear, helplessness and concern by educating you about what options are available to seniors and their caregivers through Life Care Planning.
