Keys to avoiding nursing homes

While the proliferation of nursing homes and assisted living centers continues to grow in Colorado, the desire for independent aging is also garnering more attention. Of course, there are a number of benefits to aging outside of a nursing home. The financial impact is undeniable and many elderly Californians (and their family members) probably prefer that they stay at home.

Phone scams aimed at taking advantage of the elderly

Older individuals want to maintain their autonomy for as long as they can. This is understandable; we all want to have the freedom to do things we want and spend our money as we see fit. But unfortunately, as we age, we may become too trusting and there are those who prey on that trust for personal gain.

What are some signs of nursing home neglect?

If you have a loved one in a Colorado nursing home, you no doubt want only what’s best for this person.

Is it time for assisted living?

As a busy resident of Colorado, you have plenty on your plate. Between your work, your home life, your family life, and more, balancing everything and taking care of an elderly relative can be draining. This is especially true if you notice that your loved one is becoming more of a handful than you can manage.

Is it time for your loved one to receive nursing home care?

Survey shows older people avoiding discussions on elder care

There are some subjects that we have difficulty discussing with other people. And for older individuals, one of these subjects is health care costs during retirement. This seems counterintuitive because as we age our medical needs become more pronounced. But as a recent survey demonstrates, older Americans tend to avoid talking about this very important issue.

Is it time to consider assisted living?

As we age, our capacity for self-care begins to diminish, but the process is gradual. As such, we may reach a stage where tending to our needs becomes difficult, but we are still mostly capable of looking after ourselves. At this point in your life, it could be worthwhile to consider the benefits of moving into an assisted living facility.

Is it time for a loved one to transition to a nursing home?

If you are acting as a caregiver to an aging parent, you are likely facing many challenges. Of course, your primary concern is for the health and well-being of your loved one. But you also have to balance the needs of your parent with your own needs. It is quite possible that your parent wants no part of an assisted living facility, but you know his or her condition is becoming more and more fragile.
