How Prepared Are You and How Prepared Should You Be?
With over 25 years experience in helping aging loved ones and their families, Care Right is intimately familiar with the importance of proactive planning… it’s not a matter of “if” something will happen, it’s a matter of “when”. Families don’t know what they don’t know, so we’ve outlined a series of questions for you to consider when contemplating the need for proactive senior care planning services:
- Why is it important to plan ahead?
- What is important in considering my aging plan
- What are my options based on my finances?
- What is the landscape of long-term care like?
- How does care get paid?
- Who will provide my care if/when I need it?
- What is the process of finding home care?
- What is the process of finding well-suited communities?
- What happens when families don’t plan ahead and a medical crisis occurs?
- Why do I need a Grab ‘N Go binder?
- What is a caregiver and how to detect caregiver burnout?
- What is your current plan if/when a medical crisis occurs?
- Who will be able to drop what they are doing, leave work, leave their family responsibilities for a period of time while a plan gets sorted out?
- What communication have you had as a family regarding an aging plan?
- Who already steps in to help when needed and how is that working?
- Is your family working as a team or are relationships strained?
- Do you/your family want options as they age? If so, then a plan is needed?
- If dealing with a loved one with dementia/other chronic diseases, there are a host of issues to address?
- Will, I/my family have good options if we wait until a medical crisis to put a plan together?
- What actually happens during a medical crisis–chaos?
- Is it better to start plan development while things are going “well” vs waiting?
- Are you seeing changes/declines in your loved ones (changes in weight, mood, behavior, personality, sleep, hygiene, safety, falls, driving issues, etc.)?
- What am I most worried about as my parent’s age?
- What am I most worried about as I age?
- Have there been multiple hospitalizations?
- Does it make sense to plan ahead to save time, money, stress or wait until forced into planning and then see what options may be available?
- If family members live across the states from one another, how will we manage our loved ones’ needs?
- If one of your parents is the caregiver for the other, what is your plan if/when the caregiver becomes ill?
- What is our plan if the primary caregiver passes away and leaves the other spouse without care?
