Are you, or someone you care about, declining to the point of needing additional care outside the home? Are you overwhelmed and need help getting started? Or are you not even sure where to begin? It might seem like a monumental task, like you are trying to eat an elephant!
Let’s start with the first question – How Do You Eat an Elephant? Answer: You eat an elephant one bite at a time. Sure, you might need some help getting through it. It would be impossible for one person to eat an elephant alone. Luckily, there are people- professionals- who will help you tackle this. They are called Senior Care Advisors.
You are probably wondering what a Senior Advisor does. A Senior Advisor is an elder care professional who helps individuals and families find long-term care solutions, such as senior living communities, assisted living, memory care or skilled nursing for themselves or a loved one.
Most of the time, fees for the help from your Advisor are covered by other entities. In other words, if your loved one moves into community living, you probably will not be responsible for the cost of the search.
There are Senior Advisors around the country who can help you by educating, advising, counseling, mediating and guiding your family to make an informed decision about the next steps for a loved one that may need to transition into a more supportive manner of living.
