Your Family is a Treasure
Every March, we see images of leprechauns and the legendary pot o’ gold everywhere. But the true treasure we can each claim is our family. Everyone has a unique family story. Combine the shared stories and the love we bring to our family, and a fortune is created.
As family members age, we need to consider their role in the story as we consider the living options available to them. For many, independent living in the family home is the best option. Others may choose to downsize and move to a “55 and older” community, and for still others some form of assisted living makes the most sense.
If you have been helping family members with decisions about care for older relatives, then you have probably noticed that there are many choices available. How do you narrow down the options? If you have decided on assisted living facilities, how do you even know which ones to consider? Does your loved one have any veterans’ benefits or other benefits that will help pay for their living expenses?
Families care for each other in many ways. Your older relatives have helped care for you throughout your life, and helping them find the best living situation can be one way to show how much you value them. Because the many variables make a decision so challenging, we hope you will consider Assisted Living Options as a resource. Nancy helps make the decision much simpler, and leaves you feeling confident that you have made an informed decision. Your family is like the treasure at the end of the rainbow – once you have it, don’t let it go!
