Issues With Aging Parents?
Your aging parents live in a different city or state, who will be your eyes and ears? Who will educate you and them about the elder care maze of Medicaid, Medicare, Long Term Care Insurance, Home Care v. Assisted Living v. Nursing Home, etc? You may talk to health care professionals, doctors, social workers, and friends. However, everyone seems to have a differing view about what is best for your aging parents; maybe these opinions conflict or have a different agenda. The physician desires to see your parents at home. Consequently, he does not lose a patient and revenue. An assisted living or nursing home admissions coordinator requests an assessment for possible placement or rehabilitation. Your parents state they “don’t need any help, they can manage by themselves, they don’t need to hire a home care aid.”
