Your Journey Through Elder Care

Caring for an elderly loved one can be challenging and frustrating. Where can you turn for help?

Caring for an aging parent or elderly spouse presents difficult challenges – especially when a crisis hits and you are suddenly faced with the responsibilities of elder care.  Perhaps your loved one has Alzheimer's Disease or another form of dementia.  Perhaps your aging mother is hospitalized with a broken hip and needs to go to a rehab facility or nursing home to recover.  What will Medicare pay for and for how long?

You may be the only person available to step up and become the caregiver.  Or you may be one of several siblings attempting to coordinate the care of your elderly loved one.  Whatever the situation, you are not sure of the next step, or even the first step.

A Geriatric Care Manager can walk you through each step to help you, your siblings and your loved one develop a short and long term plan of care.  Make the smart move and call (847 295-3811) or go to our website www.NSSeniorCare.com.
