Standing by as Mom, Dad or even your spouse grows older is never easy. The people we once knew to be so independent, slowly start to rely on others for help. If you’re like most family members, you feel like you owe it to your loved one to be sure they live out their remaining years in comfort with the best care. Many take on the role and responsibility as caregivers themselves or try to help their loved one remain independent in the community. While that choice certainly comes from a place of love, is it always the “best thing” for Mom or Dad?
This week’s #WebinarWednesday replay is a serious topic, but one that must be discussed: What are signs your aging family member may need long term care and what should you do next? There are a number of red flags that could mean it’s time to start having this discussion. However, there are three in particular that Elder Law & Estate Planning Attorney Robert D. Mannor discusses on this webinar.
3 Signs Mom or Dad May Need Long Term Care
There are many signs to look for, but Attorney Bob Mannor has narrowed it to the top three reasons it is time to consider next steps for your loved one.
- Aggressive Behavior
- Falling, Dehydration, Bedsores
