We know that several of our clients provide or coordinate care for an aging parent, so we wanted to pass on a helpful link put together by Sally Abrahms. Sally writes about aging and boomers for AARP and other national venues, and has first-hand experience caring for her own elderly parents.
Follow this link to Sally’s post on “8 Fabulous Resources for Family Caregivers.”
She’s included sites with information on navigating Medicare, caregiving for family members with Alzheimer’s, compensating a family member for care services, helping family members recover after surgery, downsizing a home, and other critical topics you need to know when you’re responsible for an aging parent.
