At Home Quality Care has provided a variety of resources on this page and attached links to help you understand the choices that need to be made when facing long term home health care decisions for yourself or family member.
Elder care and senior care is a complicated process of respecting the elderly’s right to self-determine their own care while recognizing the need to intervene when they are in denial. Families, caregivers and spouses struggle to find the right balance, but only through good communication can the elderly’s wishes be known and appropriate planning completed. Certain decisions will need to be made or the consequences will negatively impact their care, the family’s needs, spouses living choices, healthcare decisions, and legal requirements.
There are also a complicated array of insurance benefits, government programs, and estate planning that we will discuss on this site. Understanding these issues will better prepare you to discuss and plan your future and that of your elderly family member.
