Planning for the Care You Need at Home – a Free eBook from the Aging Life Care Association™
by Phyllis Mensh Brostoff, CISW, CMC – Aging Life Care Professional™ Member and Fellow of the Leadership Academy
While it seems the number and variety of senior housing options has increased — nursing homes, assisted living facilities, continuous care retirement communities (or Life Plan Community )— most people live and die in their own homes.
The Centers for Disease Control defines aging in place as “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.”
Planning for the Care You Need at Home walks you through the various care needs and resources you may require to successfully age in place, including:
- How to access medical care if you become homebound
- Non-medical home care and companion services
- Identifying community resources
- End of Life Care
- Working with Aging Life Care Managers™
With stories to bring these issues tolife, this eBook is designed to help support you in making the decisions that are right for you. Making a plan before a crisis happens ensures your wishes and desires will be known. Download your free copy today.
