Navigating the healthcare industry is challenging, and even more so when in the middle of a medical crisis. Before your loved one is discharged from the hospital, the conversation about homecare services needs to take place for optimal recovery.
Being a caregiver for an aging parent can be overwhelming. Whether your loved one requires skilled nursing care, rehabilitation therapies or assistance with daily living, home care services provide family caregivers a moment of relaxation and peace of mind.
For many patients and their families, the first question when arranging for home healthcare is, “Will insurance coverage help pay for it?”
Nearly 1 in 4 Americans are both the primary caregiver for a family member and maintain employment. An estimated 61% of those caring for an adult 50 years and older are currently employed either full or part-time. The demanding role of being a caregiver spreads across all racial, gender, age and ethnic boundaries.
More than 50 million Americans support themselves, their children and are becoming the primary caregiver for an aging parent. This growing group, known as the “Sandwich Generation”, faces the financial and emotional burdens of caring for multiple generations. As parents age and require more assistance and care, it may be time to investigate options.
