Ask the Senior Care Expert Tim Golden Brighstar Care

How can I keep up with my loved ones? Many of my clients face this dilemma. They grew up without personal computers or even, believe it or not, cell phones. I thought smart phones were the phones with buttons to push instead of a dial to turn. Nevertheless, if you want to keep up with the younger generation you have to learn to stay in touch using technology. There is absolutely nothing to fear.

This is a real issue. Statistics estimate that between 40% and 70% of family caregivers show signs of depression. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is that family caregivers take care of themselves.

Should I use an agency or hire privately to provide care for a loved one in their home?
By Tim Golden

I am asked this question often, probably because my company, BrightStar Care, provides in-home care. While we offer what I feel is great solution for people facing the problem of finding quality care for a loved in their home, I also realize that there is not one solution that will work for everyone.

I love talking about how to keep our elderly loved ones safe from those that would take advantage of them. I personally believe that there is a special spot in a very warm place reserved for those that would stoop to such a level as to try and take financial advantage of an elderly person.
