Ten Signs that Families Need Help
Are you or a family member struggling to meet an elderly loved one’s needs due to a disability or a chronic illness? If any of these ten issues applies to you, we at the Rothkoff Law Group can help.
- Worries about long-term care costs:
Does the elder have a home or assets in excess of $50,000 – enough to finance a short stay in a care facility but not enough for an extended stay?
- Senior Veteran With Health Care Issues:
Is the elder a veteran or the spouse of a deceased veteran, over 65 and having health care issues?
- Catastrophic event:
Has the elder experienced a stroke, heart attack, aneurism, or fall with injury?
- Chronic ailment or progressive decline:
Has the elder been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, MS, or some other chronic ailment, or experienced a decline in functional capacity for any reason?
- Consideration of spouse’s needs:
Does the elder have a spouse whose financial or health care needs must be considered in light of the elder’s medical condition?
Is the elder hospitalized and the family has been told that returning home is not an option?
Is the elder incapacitated (housebound, bedridden, in an assisted living or nursing home facility)?
- Coordination concerns:
Does the elder have a variety of healthcare providers and need coordination and advocacy for quality care?
- Caregiver burnout:
Is a caregiver struggling with burnout, frustration, guilt or ill health?
- Stress of family members:
Are family members confused or overwhelmed about care options and the care decisions they must make for a spouse or parent?
