Part of the Family Caregiver Support Series, sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care®
Includes complimentary CEUs*
Today there are more options than ever before for older adults who need help living in their homes, or who can no longer safely live alone. Gone are the days of the institutional-like nursing homes. Family structures have also changed, with a smaller pool of family caregivers living in proximity to their older loved ones. This web seminar will address the variety of options available to older adults in need of assistance, including resources for staying at home with in-home help, and alternative housing options.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- Learn about the continuum of care available to older adults as they age;
- Understand what type of care is best for an older adult, and when it may be time to transition to a different type of care;
- Learn the questions and considerations that the older adult and his or her family should take into account when choosing different elder care options; and,
- Review the costs of care and options for financing.
