Tips to help your parents transition to a nursing home

As our parents get older and can longer care for themselves, the responsibility to provide care and support often falls on adult children. For some families, this means taking the parent in to live with them. For others, however, it means helping them make the transition into a nursing home facility.

What are the benefits (and costs) of in-home companion care?

There is a common misconception that there are only two types of care for seniors who are not completely independent: assisted living or a nursing home. However, there are numerous solutions for the care a person receives, particularly when he or she is somewhere between requiring no care and requiring constant care.

Care coordination for aging parents can provide peace of mind

People are living longer in Colorado and the question of how to do that gracefully is on the forefront of many people's minds. One term frequently heard is "age in place," which is the considered the best scenario and allows a person to remain at home. There are issues that should be addressed in order to make this goal a realistic choice. Care coordination undertaken before an aging person requires extra help is the best approach.

Families here in Colorado want the best for their loved ones and want to be sure that a chosen nursing home will provide proper care, but it can be difficult to come up with the finances necessary. Fortunately, experts have advice on how a family can make a nursing home part of their care planning efforts.

Don't forget to include this important part of care coordination

When making plans for the future, there are a lot of things to consider. One of them is what would happen in the event that a Colorado resident is no longer able able to make decisions on his or her own behalf.  There are estate-planning documents that can help with respect to health and care coordiantion, as well as financial matters should that occur.
