Dr. Jim McCabe, from Eldercare Resources, leads this overview of issues relating to eldercare.
Virtually every one of us will face decisions about care for our loved ones and eventually, ourselves. Yet, when the time comes to make these choices, too often we wind up making them in an atmosphere of crisis, based on extremely limited knowledge and information. This is one of the most important transitions in life, and has major family, financial and emotional implications for the future. Don’t we owe it to ourselves and our family to prepare for this major life transition? Perhaps the greatest gift we can give our families is to have plans in place and to talk them through before we, or our loved one, is in a critical situation.
In this fascinating and highly informative one-hour program, you’ll get a solid sense of the eldercare landscape: the biggest challenges and pitfalls people face, how to deal with challenging family dynamics, an overview of retirement housing alternatives, the alphabet soup of professional designations and specialties, available services and resources, and financial considerations.
Whenever one of our clients, family or friends say they’re facing eldercare issues, we ALWAYS, WITHOUT EXCEPTION recommend that they contact our good friend and colleague, Jim McCabe. Jim has over 25 years experience working with a vast array of individuals and organizations that serve the elderly.
