In-home health care: when and why and who?

In by sjamcox6

Many families today are providing care for an aging loved one. In fact, there are over 60 million unpaid family caregivers in U.S. today and the number will keep rising for a couple of decades. Those older years are a precious time of life for a family, and we want to handle them well. We need information, support, and resources.

We may be able to make life a little easier, and postpone transition to a care facility (if we want or need to) with some interim services. Is all this stuff confusing? Yes. Scary? Oh yeah. Hard? For sure. Let’s talk about it.
