If you need to help a recently disabled senior loved one, find some health, living and financial service programs. The first thing to do is to go online to a website called eldercare.gov and plug-in your loved one’s ZIP code. Doing so will generate information on a number of different senior care agencies and resources, in and around your local area.
There are many financial and legal decisions that come up as you age. Wills, insurance, prescription drug coverage, and financial and estate plans are among the many considerations that seniors must investigate and deal with. Knowing the right kinds of lawyers and financial advisors to contact for help for these matters is crucial. But your senior loved one can find reliable financial and legal resources through local community-based agencies and programs.
For many of us, finding a trusted contractor to make home repairs or engage in renovation projects can be a daunting process. Making calls, having visits to discuss projects and contacting references can seem like a full-time job. For our senior loved ones this process becomes even more stressful and potentially dangerous as there are many folks out there that would try to take advantage of vulnerable seniors.
The good news is that there are resources in your community that can help you find trusted home and living related services for your senior loved one.
Many elder care resources exist in our communities; this is especially true of those which can help with home health care, personal care, activities of daily living and nutrition services.
As we and our loved ones age, needs change and new matters arise, that call for specialized services and care. Many of these issues can be grouped into three categories which are covered in this video series. First is health; second is living or home; and third is financial and legal.
