Ask the Senior Care Expert | What are levels of care?

When a family is at the point of considering moving a loved one out of their home and into a facility, they will have to consider what type of facility is most appropriate. The family will hear terms like independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing facility. Just what do these terms mean?

Ask the Senior Care Expert | How do I downsize?

This is a question with which most of us must deal at some point. In our society, we tend to buy larger houses as our family grows and fill those houses with “stuff.” In some cases, lots and lots of stuff.

Ask the Senior Care Expert | What Legal Documents Do I Need to Have in Place as I Age?

This is a question not asked often enough. None of us likes to think about aging. We don’t like to think about getting sick and not being able to make decisions about our health or finances. However, now is the time to deal with these decisions. If you don’t make your wishes known while you still can, someone else will be tasked with those weighty matters.

Ask the Senior Care Expert | Celebrating the Holiday’s

Happy Thanksgiving!
Merry Christmas!
Happy New Year!

Yes, it’s that time of year again when we eagerly anticipate joyful holiday greetings.  But what will the holidays be like for our loved ones who have dreaded this holiday season? 

How do I keep my parents from being scammed?

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.
