Is the Economy Forcing You to a Hard Decision about Eldercare?
As our parents age and their mental and/or physical health trends downward, we start thinking about what we are going to do about their eldercare. As long as the economy is good and does not affect the funds available for eldercare, we have several options. There are eldercare facilities to fit many budgets unless some unforeseen circumstance wipes out the budget.
The economy has limited the choices for many, many families with aging and elderly parents. Whereas a nice eldercare facility was once an option, losses in 401’s, savings plans, insurance cash values, homes and saleable assets has forced many to consider in-my-home eldercare for their elderly parents.
How do we determine whether we have options or not? First, gather all of your cost, income and asset data. You can find all of the information you will need to gather and assess the cost data in Mama Moves In. Included with the book is the Research CD, a doorway to our two research programs--InformationResearchPro and ProductResearchPro. The programs make it quick and easy for you to get the information you will need from our organized databases and the Internet. You can get eldercare cost information for nearly every town in every state. It is organized for you, so it’s a matter of pointing and clicking.
Second, have a frank discussion with all of the family members about what will be required and who is willing to contribute time, money and effort. Mama Moves In gives you the insights you need to ask the right questions and to get commitments from family members before you make your decision.
Mama Moves In gives you insight and information based on experience augmented with information and product research driven by 5 ½ years of in-home eldercare. With it you will be able to decide if the economy has robbed you of your options.
