Providing care to an aging parent is a challenge. However, providing long distance care seems impossible. The National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) states that 7 million Americans care for an elderly relative from a distance. Additionally, the NAC reports that long-distance caregivers spend over $8,700 a year, of their own money, providing care.
At Senior Life Care Planning we have care managers who watch over your parent’s health care, legal and financial needs by visiting nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or your parent’s home. Additionally, we provide strategies to protect your parent’s assets, by applying for federal, state, and other benefits i.e. Medicaid.
Our professionally trained care managers handle your parents with dignity and respect. If you require help, guidance or an independent voice please contact us for an appointment. We encourage you to allow your parents to participate in this engagement process. As your parents will have the most direct contact with our care manager and staff. Additionally, a high level of trust is a necessity, between your parents, care manager, and our staff.
Our care managers start with an in-person assessment; review the medical history; evaluate your parent’s home, an assisted living facility or nursing home; analyze your parent’s finances; evaluate your parent’s needs and wants; prepare a financial asset protection plan, monitor and implement the life care plan.
Hiring our firm is not inexpensive. However, in most cases we save your parent’s wealth, reduce your time involvement, give you peace of mind, and eliminate the potential pitfalls and risks of long distance care giving.Tags: aging parents, asset protection, care giver, care managers, long distance, medicaid, nursing homes, parent's assets, senior life care planning
