Today, there are more options than ever before for older adults who need help living in their homes or for those who can no longer live alone safely. Gone are the days where an institutional-like nursing home was the only alternative. Family structures also have changed, with a smaller pool of family caregivers living in proximity to help their aging loved ones. The options for care can be overwhelming and confusing but with a little education, families can help their loved ones find a solution that best suits them and their situation. Join this webinar to discover the variety of options available to older adults in need of assistance, including resources for staying at home with help and alternative housing options.
Participants in this webinar will be able to:
- Learn about the continuum of care available to older adults as they age
- Understand what type of care is best and when it may be time to transition to a different type of care
- Discover questions and considerations that the older adult and their loved ones should take into account when choosing different senior care options
- Review the costs of care and options for financing
